Unfortunately, this is most likely unknowable.  Not all turtles exhibit
temperature determinant sex selection.  I'm not sure that there are any
physical characteristics which would fossilize to indicate which aprcies
are and which species aren't.

If one says a vacuum cleaner  "sucks",  does that mean it doesn't?
