Hi Claudia, 

Where is this example using snails , cannot find it in the lesson you highlighted.

It would be,

Je les aime but I prefer 

Les escargots, jaime ça ...

 Hope this helps!

Hi Claudia,

it is "le" because the reference is to the idea in itself and not to the snails per se. However, you can still say, "je les aime" and it means "I love them".
