Paramecia are basically are a part of a group of organisms known as ciliates which bodies are covered in cilia, or short hairy protrusions. Paramecium has the pellicle, a stiff but elastic membrane that gives the paramecium a definite shape but allows some small changes. Covering the pellicle are many tiny hairs, called cilia. On the side beginning near the front end and continuing half way down is the oral groove. The rear opening is called the anal pore. The images posted below are more paramecium diagrams.
Nearly all species have closely spaced spindle-shaped trichocysts embedded deeply in the cellular envelope (cortex) that surrounds the organism. Oral cilia are present in vestibule and oral groove. They helps in collection of food materials. Body cilia are found in the body surface and helps in locomotion. They are of moderate and fairly uniform in length but at the posterior end, cilia are quite longer called caudal tuft.
