The sex of red-eared sliders is determined by the incubation temperature during critical phases of the embryos' development. Krysko, Kenneth L; Sheehy, Coleman M. : 051105 It is a subspecies of Trachemys scripta. Therefore, incubation temperature could be a limiting factor for the invasion of this species in parts of Europe, if hatchlings of only one sex are produced in the wild (Cadi et al. 2003.
