Ocean temp affects gender in Turtles (1 Viewer)

Yes, turtles are reptiles so the sex of baby turtles is determined by temperature during development. Around 28°C, the sex changes and it's a baby girl !
Of course, this is a problem with global warming because the sex ratio for turtles is not correct, there is a "feminization" putting the species endangers.
