Sausage Jelly

Minnesotastan found a strange photograph on a Japanese site with no information. Commenters looked around and suggested this is "sausage jelly", which is the egg case of the snail Polinices sordidus, commonly called the sordid sand snail or moon snail. Other photographs of sausage jelly do not show the eggs as hatched. Have you ever seen anything like this? Link

Yes, definitely frog or salamander eggs. My guess is that it is a section of the string-like egg clutches laid by a toad. Although, this species has an unusually thick layer of protective egg jelly.
