@nopayahnah Unusual indeed! Seems they are an invasive species here. A local reference I found on them says they think one of the populations in the area was an intentional release of snails that was purchased from a local store. A reminder of what not to do with your unwanted aquarium pets!

These are the eggs - not actually the snails - you might want to note that above... and add a link. Here's the Wikipedia link:
