Are snails insects?
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.

Thanks for the feedback!
Yes! I dress up to go to my office job and rock my leather pumps or other type of heels. Snails always come out on the drive way all over my walking path to my car. When I see… them I deliberately step on them cuz I like to feel and hear the crunch their bodies make under my high heeled feet! It takes my back when I was a kid and me and my friends would see how many snails we crushed. Immature to do as an adult who is a business professional while wearing big girl shoes. I just walk over them. Then wipe Their remains on the drive way before entering my BMW. My boyfriend gets mad when I step on them in front of them. He can take it out on me in bed. Lol!! :)
They are both invertebrates.
Firstly, insects are animals. Snails are not related to insects in the least. They are gastropods, which are mollusks. Mollusks are animals.
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.
No, it is a mollusk of the class Gastropoda.
Snails like the assassin snails will eat any aquatic insect slow enough for them to catch. Normal herbivorous snails will inadvertently eat microscopic insects and arthropods …when grazing.
A type of mollusk that is protected by a hard shell.
No, They are not insects. Google: wheel bug
The animal kingdom.
Neither, they are gastropods meaning they are related closer to mussels and squids than they are to insects.
Snails are molluscs, creatures with soft bodies, and worms, i guess, are also molluscs because they have soft bodies
A slug leaves a shiny trail similar to a snail. This trail can be dangerous to plants, flowers, and crops.
well they mostly sleep snails can hibernate and like eating allot there like an average baby they poop and pee and that stuff
In Care of Fish
The clown loach grows to over a foot long, but usually stays around 10 inches. You will need to keep multiple clown loaches in your aquarium to keep them happy.I don't know ab…out insects, but I think many fish will eat insects if they have access to them. All botia species of loach will happily eat snails, but all are gregarious and like to be in groups. So, if you are looking for a single 16" fish that will eat snails and insects, the botias aren't for you, but they will eat snails.
