In the paramecium diagram above, you can see that there’s a lot of structures of paramecium (in plural called as ‘paramecia’). They are basically are a part of a group of organisms known as ciliates which bodies are covered in cilia, or short hairy protrusions. Cilia are essential for movement of paramecia. As these structures whip back and forth in an aquatic environment, they propel the organism through its surroundings. Cilia also aid in feeding by pushing food into a rudimentary mouth opening known as the oral groove. You can spot cilia in the following 101 Diagramss.
Paramecia are eukaryotes. They have many organelles characteristic of all eukaryotes, such as the energy-generating mitochondria. However, the organism also contains some unique organelles. Under an external covering called the pellicle is a layer of somewhat firm cytoplasm called the ectoplasm. This region consists of spindle-shaped organelles known as trichocysts. Paramecium live in aquatic environments, usually in stagnant, warm water.
