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......

I consider myself very fortunate to be able to work in an area that I love. The past few years have been quite different. I have been able for the past few years to travel and do a lot of research for a different company, and in the spare time I have had, I have been able to meet some of the nicest people in many different country’s. I have been able to do research on temperatures, gestation periods, and I have seen hundreds of wild caught, farmed, and field collected Boa Constrictors.
I have met with Vets from different countries, field collectors, and trappers of all different types of animals. When I’m able to pull away from my other work, I have been able to do as much as I can. I have been able to go to some very rare places in South America, Central America and Mexico. I do most of my work in the South American North Region. I will be writing my own articles, and it has been a personal passion of mine to understand the snake that I love the most.
Josh has worked with all reptiles his life through his personal collection and managing a very nice pet store. He knows the animals as good as anyone. He has encouraged me to start something new while I was out. We made some great connections, and I took him on this and a few other trips. I’ll post them and make them available later through the site. I’ll also publish the article I’m working on. It may be more Scientific, but Josh will also be helping me with the Article.
With a few separate facilities and rooms, we have been able to work with All types of animals outside the typical animals I have bred in the past, and it has created a huge new buzz for me. While I’m traveling with other work, I’ll be able to use my computer to keep everyone updated and keep the site more of a virtual and personal site.
On this trip, we were treated to quite the experience. We were able to fly to a few private islands that you can only get to by small Plane and do some research. We have seen some of endangered Dart frogs in the wild, and some incredible spiders, reptiles, and more importantly Boas. Josh has a big passion for Tortoises and Turtles, and we have been able to maintain a great collection of all sorts over that past few years. We have been able to buy and trade a lot of animals to get to where we want to go. There is a lot of hard work to do. Quality is the Key……
On this trip, we were invited to a Private Indian Reservation where you have to have permission from the Chief to come in and see. We were treated to a rare occasion in the Guyana highlands. We got to camp, see a lot of animals, a few Indian dances, and meet people that live in a completely different world with no electricity.
We traveled to a different Indian Reservation in the day down a Huge River 45 minutes off the Essequibo River. We were invited in, and got to see how they live right off the river in a Christian Community. The Children all go to school out doors in a big outdoor class room. It was a good culture experience.
We also did a lot of night field collecting. Caiman hunting, Tree Boas, and lots of Wild Jungle animals. As a child, I always was field collecting in South Carolina where my Family lives. I would ride the roads of Jasper County looking for anything I could find with my Grandma. I have always loved field collecting in different areas. I have been able to see many things, and I’ll write a lot more about a few of the great and interesting things Josh and I have encountered. I don’t want to say too much about my research now, but it has been a good passion and I will continue to do it. I hope you enjoy the clips on the Site... I’ll be changing them often...
