You need to get her a a chameleon savvy vet. Just dropping eggs isnt normal. You need to setup a laying bin for her and cover the bottom half of her cage with a sheet and leave. her. alone. Along with scheduling a vet appointment ASAP.

Start learning about lay bins, she needs one ASAP, and a trip to vet is in order as well.
I've just removed the eggs from her cage and now shes stopped being snappy and is letting me go near her again, I'm so shocked I was convinced it was a male, and theres no way she came in contact with a male? Do why do I need a lay bin?

Chameleons will lay eggs unmated or not. Like chickens they will develop unfertilized eggs. She will lay eggs again in the future so a laying bin will save you the time and hassle of this again
