I take issue with the idea that a snake is somehow "worthless" simply because it's the product of atypical breeding...or, obversely (e.g.) - how a "Normal" Ball Python has "less value" (other than what it commands in the marketplace) than some hard-to-find morph that fetches thousands of dollars.

Suppose a hurricane hits the Florida peninsula, a Kingsnake there somehow finds refuge on floating debris, and drifts for a week or two to the Pascagoula refinery in southeast Mississippi, where a population of holbrookis is known to reside. Let's say it mates with one. Are the offspring "worthless?"
