No, they won't bite more than they can eventually swallow. My lion does it all the time. Not so much with shrimp, but more with fish.

Be careful letting this happen on a regular basis. Lions are notorious for swallowing thing tey cant fully it into their stomachs. If it goes uncheked repeatedly, itll lead to gastrointestinal complications and possibly death. Simple answer: dont let it happen repeatedly
