Do snails hide some type of secret intelligence? They are pretty closely related to octopuses, after all.

    Well idk really but what I observed is that the moment I take my phone out to take a picture of a snail, it starts shitting like out of spite. I can watch it and it just snails along, but camera comes out, SHITTING TIME. I have spent countless hours in Photoshop removing snail shit from my photos.

      People have no concept for how ancient and diversified invertebrate life is. Chordates are lame as frick.

    every time I heard people talking about octopuses they say that octopus are super special and may be aliens because they are not related to anything else on earth but they are related to snails?

      There's 85000 species of molluscs. I don't know who's saying they're alien. Children learn about taxonomy in primary school.

            That doesn't exist in any American primary school curriculum.

              My first Holocaust lesson was in the fourth grade, at age 9 or so. I'll Never Forget(r) it.

          They do, only very basic one though. Or at least they did.

          Just basic stuff like the vertebrate classes, some invertebrates.
          Basically teaching them in simple terms that whales are mammals and not fish or that worms aren't bugs

      You're misremembering a popsci clickbait headline.
      They're molluscs. Slugs snails and such are gastropods (literally gut foot). Squid octopus, cuttlefish are cephalopods, or head footed. A defining characteristic of molluscs is a shell and a foot, the foot being a muscular appendage.
      The reason that article called them "aliens" was to grab headlines, but the paper was more about how weird their genes are, and how they seem able to edit their own genome on the fly.
      They are absolutely from earth and we can trace their lineage back pretty definitely to the ancestors (the nautilis and friends), but they are a weird and unique animal.
