How do different temperatures determine the gender of sea turtles?

    Unlike other creatures who have their sex determined by chromosomes, sea turtles have their gender determined by the temperature in the nest that they hatch in.  If the temperature in the nest remains below 85 degrees, the turtles will be male.  If the temperature is above 85 degrees the turtles will become females.
