    Are there other snails in the tank with her?
    If so most likely they are eggs from another snail.
    They will be fine where they are until they hatch.

    That's very strange I kho other snails will lay eggs on the shells of another but i have never heard/seen one do it to its self... it could be possible if the were to St reach all the way out of her shell and reach her back, I have seen my rams do it a bunch but only when they fall on their backs and can't grip anything...

    And just leave them where they are :) they are safest on her back anyways!
