No, snails are in the animal group called mollusks. This group includes, slugs, clams, oysters, octopuses, sea slugs, cuttlefish, squid and the nautilus. What makes these animals mollusks and not insects is the fact that they are soft bodied with either one large foot, or multiple tentacles, and have a shell, or a remnant of a shell inside they're body. They also have a mantle and some have a radula, which is a small curved mouth with a rough inside that is used to scape off plant material to eat.

They aren't even related to each other at all (except for being animals). Snails are gastropods.
Snails are molluscs, creatures with soft bodies, and worms, i guess, are also molluscs because they have soft bodies
First of all, an insects are part of the animal kingdom. No, a snail is not an insect, but yes it is an animal. I believe a snail is a mollusk.
Insects are insects and have six legs, etc. Snails are gastropod mollusks.
Snails are gastropods, and are not even related to insects (which are arthropods).
No. They are not even related to one another. Snails are gastropods, which are a type of mollusk. Insects are arthropods.
