Default Found a bag of snake eggs

Was doing some yard work on a property we recently bought and found this old bag of potting soil with about a dozen snake eggs in it. It was in some very tall grass under a wooden porch. Dont know what kind they are but a local snake expert has them in an incubator for me.

I found some similar a few years back and we put them in a shot glass under loose Saran Wrap behind the kitchen sink and where the sun through the window would warm them. A few weeks later we had baby leopard geckos running around on the kitchen counter.

These are too big to be geckos.
