We usually see these clutch of pink little eggs on the side street canals or somewhere near a body of water like ponds, swamps or lakes. There are also snails eggs that are attached to plants, walls or sides of the stones. Some are also misplaced on a duck’s face.
But have you ever wondered how these cute eggs were laid? Here an actual video from Bahaa Ismail on YouTube wherein a snail lays its egg in a snail farm.
The snail crawled to the side of the container and started to stick its eggs. The eggs slowly slides out of the snail’s shell, it’s like a small factory of peletes that continuously delivering its products.

It’s quite fascinating to see this kind of event.
According to Wikipedia, a Snail is used to most of the members of the molluscan class Gastropoda that have a coiled shell. If the snail-like animal has no shell, then it is considered as a slug. And if it has a small shell cover, it is called a semi-slug.
