Protists

By DJ Canterbury

Euglena

The euglena is like an oval shape and moves around using a flagella. The flagella moves around by sliding side to side. Euglenas reproduce by binary fission meaning it splits its body in a asexual way copying its DNA not sharing it. The euglena also eats using photosynthesis and you may think that that is impossible but it has a eyespot that helps it detect where the light is. The eyespot helps it respond to its environment.

Amoeba

The amoeba is like a blob and it gets food in a cool way. The amoeba has some pseudopods and it stretches its body out going around its food and when it attaches around its food it comes together and when it stretches out the body follows it . The amoeba also moves around by its pseudopods.

Volvox

The volvox reproduces by its daughter colonies. It lives in ponds and lakes. The volvox moves by its cilia that is around its body and they sway side to side.

Paramecium

The paramecium moves around using its cilia that mainly all protists all have besides the amoeba. They respond to their environment by avoidance behavior. They reproduce by splitting their body in half sharing their DNA just like the Euglena. The paramecium eats by using their cilia to take the food in the oral groove that they have.
