Jeremiah finds it easier to hybridize snakes with a pair of each snake that is to be bred because of the importance of pheromones in successful hybridizing. Another well known snake breeder, Dwight Good, sums it up very well:

If my goal is to breed a cornsnake to a kingsnake, first I will introduce corn to corn and king to king. I allow both pairs to court heavily, but I prevent either male from actually breeding a female. Male courtship is typically displayed with the male rubbing his chin along the female’s back and crawling on top of her. If she flees, he will usually chase her around the cage. If she is receptive and does not flee, he will continue his courtship with twitching motions and a rippling of his belly muscles along her back. The height of his courtship will result in several tail search copulatory attempts. The male will run his tail beneath hers and with a sliding forward or rearward motion attempt to insert a hemipenis into her cloaca. Don’t allow him to actually breed at this point. Once I deduce that both members of my prospective hybrid pairing are ready, I will attempt hybridization. With the male that I wish to use still in a breeding frenzy, I remove the female of his own type that he is trying to breed, and I drape him across the intended female of another species/genera. Once the male is “in position” on top of the female, I observe his actions for a moment in order to determine if any further manipulation is in order

I save all sorts of weird factoids. LOL!
