Honestly I'm not sure that I understand your question. Turtles grow the same way any other living thing grows... taking in nutrients and converting them to energy (calories) which prompts growth. Obviously this is the short simplified version... but it is the same with all living things. We all grow the same way.

no-one Leah eats them

All turtles grow to many times their hatchling and juvenile size, sea turtles grow quite large of course but the majority of currently sold pet turtles will also grow to sizes that are expensive to manage especially if female.

Turtles grow according to their genetic make-up. They will grow until they reach their adult size - regardless of the size of the tank they're kept in !

Yes, turtles grow and develop as well, any living thing, which is having food and other mechanism of body, the definitely they will grow and develop as normal. Turtles are also like any normal live animal and hence bound to develop.

Depends on the species. Red eared sliders can grow to about a foot and other sliders can grow a simular size. Many painted turtles will grow about nine inches (however southern painted turtles usually stay slightly smaller). Sea turtles (which are not really available in the pet trade), most species of snapping turtles, and most species of tortoises grow many feet long. Unlike mammals, male turtles stay smaller than female turtles so they generally make better pets. The smaller the turtle the less space, time changing tanks, food, etc. it consumes. Musk turtles, male map turtles, and male painted turtles tend to be the smaller adult turtles.
