Two Croc Facts

1. The sex of crocodiles is determined by the incubation temperature. Eggs incubated at temperatures below 85 degrees become females. Those incubated above 95 degrees become males.

2. Crocodiles are the closest living relatives to birds.

  1. Uh huh – Good point… I was wondering the same. Perhaps they cannot be incubated at that temperature successfully?

  2. Right…. – What would happen if you alternated the temperature every hour or so from 85 degrees then to 95 degrees? Would that creat a She-male??

  3. WHO CARES!? – WHO REALLY CARES HOW THEY ARE DETERMINED. LETS JUST GET RID OF ALL OF THEM THAT WAY THEY DON’T EAT OUR CHILDREN. (IF I REALLY HAD ONE I WOULD CARE!)

  4. This is not a worthless fact. – Infact many zoo’s use this fact so they have a regulated female to male ratio.
