Dozens of snake eggs have been discovered in a sand pit at an Australian school, to the horror of students.
The pit was closed for three days while wildlife volunteers combed through the sand to remove the eggs.
A total of 43 brown snake eggs were buried in the sand at the New South Wales school, Yahoo 7 reports.
The eggs were reportedly two weeks away from hatching, and were safely removed.
Another shock discovery was made on New Years' Eve.
A Queensland family lifted the lid on their barbeque to find a medium-sized carpet python tucked inside under the grill.
They called in a professional to remove the snake from the celebrations.
