You're close, but double het to double het breeding gives all eggs a 1/16 CHANCE of being double homozygous. Just because you get 16 eggs, or more, doesn't mean you will get a snow. It just means each egg has that chance. You could also produce 2 or 3 snows. The mysteries of snake genetics.

:Ok... number one-
:It's a lot easier to cross two subspecies than it is to cross two species. Carpondros are much rarer than either jungles, greens, or junglexdiamonds, therefore they are more expensive.

:number two-
:When you cross an albino to an anery, you get hets. Then you have to breed the hets together, only one out of 16 of the babies will be a snow. As you can see, snows are a LOT of work to produce, therefore they are rarer and more expensive. The price should start dropping as more snows are produced.
