Question: in some reptiles sex determination is dependent on temperatures experienced...

Question details

In some reptiles, sex determination is dependent on temperatures experienced during embryonic development. In turtles the percent of eggs that develop in males decreases as temperature decreases. During a cold year, you measured the number of males and females that hatched in a clutch of 250 eggs( all eggs hatched). You counted 200 males. You also noticed that 30 of the hatchlings had dark green shells, and this did not seem to be linked to sex. If you closed your eyes and picked up one of the hatchlings, what is the probablility it was dark green shelled female?
