Using le for les escargots instead of les
i was wondering why for the sentence
j’aime les escargots. It becomes je le aime instead of je les aime.
This question relates to:French lesson "Using le or l' to refer to previously mentioned ideas (direct object pronoun)"
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".

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!
