Euglena

how does it get its food: it uses photosynthesis

How does it move: it uses its flagellum, a long whip-like structure that acts like a little motor

How it reproduces: by binary fission, which splits itself in half.

How does it respond:It uses its eyespot to locate light so it can do photosynthesis.
