What sex were these incubated for.

Finally I know what to do with with my "evergreen" swimming-pool... Will the price of Chlorine and Hydrochloric acid balance out the price of meat (etc) for the gator???

If only...

Firstly I'm going to start feeding them today and as babies they require only 6grams of food per week but will take more if they are presented with more and a adult of 20 years plus require 2kg per week also will take more if presented with.

Secondly most were incubated as would to develop into females and only a few as for males
Man kind would be very lonely with out the companionship of animals
