The cell and its organelles survive the entire living process
Their movement is on hair-like structure
These structures present a look of feet
Since their movement is on these false feet they are also known as pseudopodia
Protozoa are heterogeneous in nutrition
Through their cell surface both the process of respiration and excretion occurs
Reproduction in then is asexual
Reproduction process can be binary fission, multiple fission or budding
The types of Phylum Protozoa are-
Zooflagellata – Trypanosoma, Giardia, Leishmania and Trichomonas
Sarcodina – Amoeba, Entamoeba, Actinophrys and Pelomyxa
Sporozoa – Plasmodium and Nosema
