Answers

Alligators have no chromosomes to determine sex.
The sex of the offspring is determined by the temperature in the nest and is fixed within 7 to 21 days of the start of incubation.
Incubation temperatures of 30 °C (86 °F) or lower produce a clutch of females
Incubation temperatures of 34 °C (93 °F) or higher produce entirely males.

*Nests constructed on levees are hotter than those constructed on wet marsh and, thus, the former tend to produce males and the latter, females.
*The natural sex ratio at hatching is five females to one male.
*Females hatched from eggs incubated at 30 °C weigh significantly more than males hatched from eggs incubated at 34 °C.
