The question is in the subject. I thought that I could, but someone pointed me to a rule in the section on feeding species which says
Quote:
Beginning with the First Player and continuing clockwise, each player must feed one of their hungry species. A species is hungry if it has less food than its Population.


So I thought that I would ask here, if it is possible to keep filling up fat tissue on one species whilst you still have other species to feed?

Yes. Generally, non-Hungry species cannot eat any more, so there's no reason to mention them. Fat Tissue provides an exception, and they're in a semi-hungry state that allows them to keep eating.

Buh? Hungry species can't eat? So no species can eat ever, since they all start hungry each round? I'm certain you're describing starvation of a species the more I think about this as I type.

Yes, but you're only allowed to fill Fat Tissue up to the level of the body size of the species. You can't just cram 20 food onto the Fat Tissue, there's a limit.

Now, if you have a pop 5, size 5 creature with Fat Tissue, you can feed the 5 population and then add 5 food to Fat Tissue, potentially taking a total of 10 food in one turn feeding phase. But if you have feed the population and filled Fat Tissue up the level of the body size, your fatty creature is done eating for this turn feeding phase.

P.S. Edited for clarity.

You mean one feeding phase right, not one turn?

Just to give some context, so it doesn't sound like a crazy thing to do.
It was my first play of the Flight expansion, but the question is not expansion specific, hence being in here.

I had a land species with fat tissue and a Flying species with 6 population. There was a ton of food on the cliff, so my flying species was definitely going to be able to feed fully. However, I wanted to max out the fat tissue on the land based species before starting on the flying species, which, after some debate, I was allowed to do.

That is fine. On your turn, you choose 1 species that can still eat food, and feed it appropriately (based upon it's traits).

You are correct, I meant to say
