UPDATE: You will not understand the Video untill you read the Full Blog. https://stonereptiles.wordpress.com/2016/08/03/retort-from-stone-2/
History: In 2009 we attempted to breed Male Diamond with No luck. He was just getting started with not much action to the females I selected, and we did not produce from him. In 2010 we were very fortunate to be able to produce a handful of babies. The babies are quite unique and very pretty. They have a special look. I would not show off the project until I felt secure with babies.
There have been, rumors of different white animals. I could only confirm one that was a beautiful BCC female in a foreign nation. There are two confirmed sightings, and both are different snakes according to eye witnesses. Rio Animal by Globomundo, and a separate film crew has varified this. I had great interest in the other Female Boa knowing that I had a male. However, I believe they would be incompatible, and the health and availability of that animal "female" was always in question. BCI do not exist there. I have kept my eye out since 2006 and sorted through many animals that had different looks. Up to this point, I have yet to see anything close, and I doubt I ever will. I have been able to identify genetic "Markers". Aditional sightings of two white boas in Central America have been reported. Many have the same markings and Phenotype characteristics of this project. However, I am confident breeders around the world will have to prove them to be compatible to make a Super Fire Diamond. I felt they looked like Albinos. They may or May not be a True Super Fire that is proven to be healthy into adulthood like the boa I refer to as "Diamond".
AVAILABLITY: We will have limited availability in 2011, and we will release a few updates from time to time. Due to the rarity of Princess Diamond project. In a few years I hope to travel and show people a live version of a “Princess Diamond” baby white Boa. This is the best project I have ever worked with. The PD project has helped me stay positive in a down Boa Market the past few years. I have a strong passion in breeding for the ultimate Designer Boa Constrictor… Contact us DIRECTLY, if you are interested in finding out more about the project availability list.
Name Princess Diamond. UPDATE: 2013: Diamond was retired from Breeding in 2012 and will no longer produce any direct offspring.
As of 2013, a male will be referred to as an EMPEROR DIAMOND. The male you see here is named DIAMOND!! He is part of the Princess Diamond Project. We will give another update in August of 2015 with a few Surprises.
A language barrier exists between many countries. Some third world countries call any special snake a "COBRA", "PRINCESS", "QUEEN", or "KING" etc.., regardless of the Sub species or Snake. The name Nascimento does not apply to this project. That story is one of the Rumors you may hear. Henceforth, we kept the name "Princess" as part of a project because I do like the name Princess Diamond for the project in general.
I hope you enjoy the Diamond, a Super FIRE Boa. A Female Super Fire Boa is "PRINCESS DIAMOND". A Male is an "Emperor Diamond" Phenotypes will have a "FIRE DIAMOND" to the visual genetic maker. This project has been proven to be genetic using BCI Bloodlines. We have never bred any BCC bloodlines to this lineage to see if they are also compatible. There has been a BCC morph project that genetically acts similar to the hundreds of Morphs and Mutations in the BCI projects. The Mystery and genetic combinations are endless all over the World. Enjoy the PRINCESS DIAMOND PROJECT! This is not a Genetic Recessive Project.
This is only one of many projects that we hope will revolutionize the Boa World. To end confusion with "possible Dominant" or "Pastel Dream" Boa constrictors that are reffered to as "PD", we will no longer use the term "PD". This is only a special project to a few people. We are talking about a snake that could NOT exist in the wild here. This is only special to collectors of A PET SNAKE. It helps prove the theory that Breeders use captive reproduction of animals that could not THRIVE in the wild. The Boa Constrictor is NOT an Invasive Species to to the United States of America, and the Diamond is a Classic example of this. Imports are on the Decline, and we don't need the genetic intellect of other nations. The Diamond Project is one we hold dear as an avid collector and breeder of the Best snake on the Planet. THE BOA CONSTRICTOR!!!! Never stop Believing in your Dreams......

This week, we have had some cool ball pythons shed. We have a few more clutches this year. We didn't have as big of a Ball Python year as we were hoping but we are happy with many of the cool morphs that came out. Being a true Boa lover, it is easy to see that the ball python market has evolved a LOT faster, and there are multiple combos to work with. Pretty soon, I hope to be making some purple boas with the T positive. It is cool to go to the shows and see the hard work of the Boa people still plugging away.
I get the calls of the excited boa lovers with the newer morphs being accessable. Everyone keeps complaining about prices in the down economy, but i have to say that the passion with the breeders of making stuff that make the hobby get excited will ALWAYS exist. it is a free market, and i believe that people have a right to sell for what they want, but if they want to have a long term gain, the short term strategy doesn't seem to work. Expensive Boa projects are a longer term investment. That is my opinion.
We had some Japananese visitors this week, and it was so cool to see a Boa lover and and Ball lover from across the World get excited over animals that they haven't seen in person. It makes the work worthwhile. We will start listing many of the Ball pythons we have in the availalble section later this week. There are soo many morphs and mixed genes to work with that it seems me that people are having a more difficult time in deciding what direction they want to go. That is the Pros of having many different beautiful combos to work with, and also gives many people to produce stuff that has never been produced or seen before. It brings life and excitement to all those who LOVE breeding and keeping them.
I'll be blogging about the other animals and hopefully get the video blog going soon. The new site is a lot more difficult to get used to, but with all the updated pictures, I should have the Gallary section and the available section up by next week.
Please check back. I'll be blogging on many different types of animals through the week, that I have found to get me more excited about REPTILES in general.
Hope you enjoy the Pics.
