Gargoyle gecko incubation
 
Are Gargoyle geckos temperature-dependent sex determination (TSD)?
I have read conflicting information online, and am hoping to hear from experienced breeders of this species.
Also, a breeder mentioned to me that he rarely hatches males. Is this a common problem?

No Temperature plays no roll in sex I have a incubator and have tried temp from 73-80 and it's made no difference in the sex some was male and some was female.

Interesting bit in this article; auriculatus don't have sex chromosomes, nor do they seem to follow a consistent pattern of TSD.

It seems there is some yet unknown mechanism at work.
