Default Plethodon cinereus eggs or slug eggs?

Well I found some eggs in my backyard, and well at first I thought they were salamander eggs, with no mom. (There was about 8-9 eggs). So I gathered some to keep under some supervision (Maybe not the best choice, bu *** happened). Doing some research, the eggs I had looked similar to that of a Plethodon cinereus, but they were transparent little jelly balls about _ <--that big. I can see an embryo but they're so small and like little cloudy white in the middle . <that big. I can't give a picture right now but I don't know whether to remove them from my tank or not (I already have one salamander in there, but the eggs are kept in another dish) Would a salamander eat a slug egg?
