Best Answer

snails are both males and females because they have a female uterus and oviduct and ovaries and they also have male testis and spermduct. That is the only thing i can really tell you. We will prolly never know exactly why they are this way. This is the way that God made them and we should just leave it at that. Snails have both male and female organs so they are able to reproduce without a mate. This may seem like a pointless answer but there is a difference in reproducing and creating genetic diversity. Genetic diversity is achieved when two snails mate together. Now how which one "plays" male and which one is female when they do breed is quite thought provoking.
