    Is this possible? What happens if siblings breed? Parent and baby?

    All of my mystery snails were inbred for several years. I imagine after awhile the line diminishes but I got several successful batches with no indication of problems/deformity etc.

    The snails all breed with each other ( parents/brothers/sisters etc ) - why do you ask?

    Just curious really. I have two 'babies' that started mating recently. The mother has passed but I was just thinking about if she hadn't.

    Good to know for the future. I have 5 new smallish clutches.

    They should be fine - I had several clutches that came all from the same first snails that bred originally :)
