In Reply to: And now, the $64K question.... posted by Silly-atus fan on September 30, 2002 at 17:22:19:


:Are any of the Rhacs temperature sexable?
:There are followers of both theories, I personally say yes, to at least Ciliatus and Auriculatus (no experience breeding the others... yet).
:Do any of you have records of incubation temperatures and genders of the hatchlings? This would be either an interesting topic for discussion, or a hot potato. Anyone game to try it?


IMO, cresties aren't tem. dependent. I'd be interested to see what someone who produces mass quantities (like Allen) thinks. I've tried a range of temps & none of them have consistently yeilded high percenages of one sex to another. As far as aurics & other rhacys, I really haven't played around enough with temps to see. From my (limited) experience with leachies & the experience of others I know I do believe that these may be sex dependent, but again I really haven't put much into it. I'm just happy that they hatch & even happier when they eat :) Just my two cents.
