Do you really think slugs and snails are "animals." They are not. They are what are termed “invertebrates,” which means they lack a backbone. They belong to a large and highly diverse group of invertebrates known as the Phylum Mollusca. You had better read Genesis again.
Genesis 5 and a couple of New Testament verses mentioning God creating them male and female seem to refer specifically to human beings. Rather than to state that male and female occur in all species.
YECs frequently use Genesis 5:2, including (if I recall correctly) as an argument for instant creation and against evolution (including evolution of gender).
In fact THIS is what I was struggling to remember. How YECs regularly quote Mark 10:6 (one of two NT verses harking back to Genesis 5:2 but where the context was Jesus teaching against divorce) as an argument against MILLIONS OF YEARS and for SIX DAY CREATION. (In most translations it seems Matthew 19:4 does not fit the bill quite like Mark 10:6 does.)

Mark 10:6 (NIV): ""But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female’"".
