Question regarding Snapdragons

I have 3 snapdragon plants. Do they self-seed? After the flowers dry out, there are hard oval shaped balls where the flowers were. Are those seeds? I want these particular snapdragons again. (Attaching one of the pictures) Please help.
Thank you. :)

    Yes they will set seed, but they may have been cross pollinated so you could get a variety of colours. 
    Its quite simple to take cuttings - lots of info on the internet - and that way you'll get more of the same plants.

    Antirhinums are actually perennials, but on the tender side, so don't usually survive the winter. They can though, if growing in a favourable place - my parents in Sussex had one that came up every year in the shelter of a conifer. I have had some that I have kept in the greenhouse overwinter for a year or two. If you are able to do that you could do more cuttings in spring.
