A lot of people ask whether snails are intelligent and the answer is not as simple as a yes or no. While it is true that snails do not have a brain they do have a series of ganglia that function somewhat like a brain. This allows snails to perform basic functions such as eating and moving.
However snails are not capable of complex thought or emotions like we are. They also have a very short memory span so they are not able to learn or remember much.
There have been some studies that suggest that snails may be capable of basic forms of learning and memory. For example one study found that snails were able to learn and remember a simple maze.
However it is important to remember that these studies are still preliminary and much more research is needed to determine whether or not snails are truly intelligent.
