Administration of exogenous estradiol benzoate (EB) or an estrogen agonist, R2858, into eggs of snapping turtles caused all embryos incubated at male-producing temperatures to develop as females, whereas testosterone propionate (TP) caused 42% of the embryos to develop as females. Some of the embryos treated with EB, R2858, or TP also had hypertrophied oviducts. Neither dihydrotestosterone (DHT) nor cholesterol had any apparent effect on the sex determination of embryos incubated at male… CONTINUE READING
