Well, you'll definitely pick up polymorphic SNPs in the 16 animal family...and I'd suspect they'll probably be polymorphic in other individuals/populations unless there are dramatic genetic differences between them and 'other' animals (and avoid the very low MAF SNPs if mapping is your goal).

The best thing to do is probably select a small number of your discovered SNPs, and test them in a validation panel of other individuals. This will tell you if your assembly and SNP discovery is doing a good job.
