The amoeba gets its food by surrounding particles of food with its pseudopods. The amoeba also moves with the pseudopods. The amoeba reproduces by a process called binary fission. When there is drought going on the amoeba surrounds itself with a cyst. This allows the amoeba to survive the drought.
Paramecium uses hair-like structures called cilia to get its food. paramecium moves by cilia. paramecium reproduces two ways:conjugation and binary fission. Paramecium respond to their environment by a Tricocyst.
