Bill,
E-mail is at the top, just click on my name. If you are trying to hatch females there is a safer method. Keep the temps between 78-80F for the first two weeks or so, then lower them into the mid 70Fs. By then all internal structures should be at least in their basic form. In other words its sex should be determined by then. I know this works with leopard geckos, but I have never tried it in this species so I am unsure of the exact time. Either way it is safer then keeping a steady 80F through the entire incubation period (40-50 days). Give it a try and let me know. I usually incubate at room temp (varies 72-78F during incubation) and I get a good ratio of males to females. But I might experiment a bit this year.
-Mike
