forms pseudopods:bugles in the cell that help it move and eat

grow and wrap pseutopods around food forming a food vacuole: where food is absorbed and broken down
feeds on bacteria and smaller protists

the cilia moves through two oral groove: where the food enters the cell
fees on bacteria and smaller protests
Paramecium: how to reproduce
binary fission
conjugation
Paramecium: where there found

Euglena: what they look like
use flagellum to move
use eyespot to detect sunlight
their green he cause they contain chlorophyll
a green pigment that helps photosynthesis
eukaryotes
unicellular
Euglena: how and what they eat
water troves when sunlight is available
or
header trims when sunlight is not available
also feed on other smallsmaller protists
