Amoeba, Phylum Rhizopoda, do not have cell walls. They
are pseudopods, filled with cytoplasm, and mostly live in fresh or salt water. The marine protozoans have shells made of
silicon. They use diffusion for their gas exchange.
Flagellates, Phylum Zoemastagino, have one or more flagellates.
Some live in termites gut and break down the food. They can cause the African sleeping sickness which is carried by the tee-tee
Cilliates, Phylum Ciliaphera (paremesium), reproduce
asexually and live in aquatic habitats. Their body plan includes a cilia, oral groove, and gullet.
Sporozoans, Phylum Sporazoa, are all parasites. They
produce a spore which is the product of a cell.
