Is it just me, or is reptile breeding sort of a pyramid scheme?

I was going through some photos of an exotic pet expo I went to a couple years ago.


Are people really paying $1300 for a pet when they could get the same animal with wild-type/normal coloration (which is quite exotic-looking in the first place) for half to a third of that price? I don't think so, not unless they want it for breeding. Most of the time I think you have breeders breeding exotic morphs for other breeders. What makes a rare color morph more expensive, anyway? It's worth more for breeding purposes!
