Economics, my young Wizard. It's the same reason a rarer pet costs more to purchase in the first place.

The rarity of the two pets you are hatching impacts the cost of the hatch.
The rarer the pets - the more valuable the outcome - the higher the cost to hatch.

Ya, ... i didn't get the sarcasm at first. very funny!

The pet hatching process is introduced to new wizards during basic WC orientation under level 10. Most new players can not use the hatching system for weeks or months because of the giant cost. I think I hatched my first pet in level 20's. And it was useless.

Understanding the whole pedigree/talent/hybrid/inheritance stuff takes quite a while and based on posts on the forum is not well understood by a large population of wizards. Pet hatching is a really cool element in the game, but its too expensive and complicated for new players, especially kids.
It would be better if the balance of cost/complexity/effort/benefits of pets scaled more to wizard level. And then some pets should only be equipable by wizards of certain levels only.

Like if you're pet was an MEGA, it would cost more because of the level you're pet is. Also if you're pet is super rare. The more higher the level is or the rarer the pet. The higher it cost to hatch.

Hope I helped
