Why are snails both male and female?
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.
