    Is there any draw backs from mating a mother Imp. With her son?

    in breeding would mess up the genetic pool and lead to sickly individuals. Do not do it.

    You can, but over time it would cause negative effects with genetics. Doing it once may not produce negative effects. I would shy away from it though.

    I can't figure out why this question keeps popping up; why so many people want to do this.

    Breeding related individuals of any animal species is not a good idea. Don't do it.

    Can you and should you are two very different things...
    Personally I would not force any mother to have sex with their young

    The only Reason why I ask, I kept a scorpling from my Pandinus Emp brood and just incase it is a male and in the circumstance they do mate when I reintroduce them i was just wanting to know

    I wouldn't worry about it in the least. Don't keep it up for many generations.

    First, thats a really weird question. Second I wouldn't do it. And third I agree with darkness975, NYAN, Bob Lee, and JUAFUENTES.

    I agree, not good. Just like mating to individuals from the same sac! There is a reason that males and females mature at diffrent rates! Although i think it happens in the wild sometimes! But the best is to mate individuals from diffrent sacs!
