FAWNA NSW, Inc. now says the eggs may belong to a far less deadly reptile species called water dragons, and acknowledged that ultimately they are unsure what species the eggs belong to.
Volunteers removed the eggs from a playground at St. Joseph's, a Catholic elementary school in Laurieton, New South Wales.
A set of 43 mysterious eggs were found on December 20 in the sandpit of an Australian school yard, raising questions over where they came from, and with some experts believing they may have originated from a highly venomous brown snake.
A group of students were shocked to discover a huge nest of deadly brown snake eggs buried in their school sandpit.
After three days, 43 eggs were collected from seven nests.
The rescuers said they shone a light through the eggs and could see small striped snakes inside.
Children at a NSW primary school were given a festive fright after finding dozens of what were believed to be snake eggs in a sandpit.
Volunteers believed they were laid by two snakes most likely from a reserve that backs onto the school with FAWNA volunteer Yvette Attlier saying the location was an ideal spot for laying eggs.
Rescuers eventually uncovered 43 eggs.
"Snakes don't bury their eggs".
Snakes cannot dig and don't bury their eggs, and it has been suggested the eggs could have been laid by a far less risky local species: the water dragon.
Mr Miller said he believed the eggs were only weeks away from hatching and turning the children's sandlot into a risky snake pit.
Australian brown snakes have potentially lethal venom but they rarely bite humans unless they feel threatened.
Brown snakes do not guard their eggs after they are laid and the juvenile snakes are completely independent of the mother.
The nests and eggs were found scattered in the school's sandpit.
"They obviously saw the sandpit and thought that will do nicely - the sand regulates the temperature perfectly for them", she said.
The wildlife charity moved to clarify the situation and confirmed their original identification of the eggs was in fact wrong.
