Hi There
I have few questions on incubating eggs for Indian Star Tortoise.
My friend has successfully hatched 6 baby Indian Stars last year(this is his first time). He set for 31-32 Celsius during the whole incubating period. And apparently they are all males(I have had more than 50 Indian Stars and is quite accuarate to sex for Indian star even for hatchlings). If we want to have all females, do we need to raise the incubating temp. to 32-33 Celsius or even higher? Or does it require any " cooling" period? Any tips to get all females?
Cooper
