i did a project on this as an undergrad... all snakes are supposed to be genetically sex determined, although some have sex chromosomes that we can distinguish from somatic chromosomes (ZZ/ZW) and some have homomorphic sex chromosomes (or maybe no sex chromosomes at all, who knows). i think they are the only subgroup of reptiles (maybe tuataras?) that have no species with temperature sex determination.
