    You may be interested in this project. It was very informative. They were actually able to get 100% females at certain higher temps.(which, in my humble opinion, we should strive for since males don't get along with males and only need one male to a group anyway). of course their incubator may have been more stable since the whole idea was to try different temps and see sex output... plus they probably monitored the temps day and night... the project was on Manouria emys emys but that's close enough, right? Hope you like it...
