Protazoa Euplotes

Kingdom: Protista
Phylum: Cilliophora
Class: Cilliatea
Order: Hypotrichida
Family: Euplotidae
Genus: Euplotes
Species: (multiple species)
Made Up of Cells
Euplotes are unicellular
they have all the normal animal cell parts except they have a U shaped macronucleus and a large vacuole
Euplotes feed on Chilomonas paramecium
Euplotes eat by using their cillia to guide food into its cup shaped buccal region
the paramecium live in fresh water in about the same conditions as the Euplotes
By: Chris Black
Euplotes can be seen using its cirri and "walking" along objects.
Euplotes' habitat is in fresh water and they live in algae. This algae is what they "walk" on.
Euplotes reproduce asexually
the offspring doesn't look much different than the parent Euplotes
Euplotes usually only have one offspring at a time
it can reproduce at the sexual stage in its life which is near the end of its life cycle

Facts about Euplotes - Encyclopedia of Life
Walking With Euplotes
Euplotes-Project Creek Watch
Growth and development
Euplotes average at about 101 microns long and 85 microns wide
their life span ranges from 2.6 days to 18.6 days
Euplotes as adult
Responds to stimuli
Euplotes can consume things faster when food is plentiful to increase growth efficiency
if there is a shortage of food, Euplotes slowly shrink and won't reproduce so it can survive longer
a special trait of the Euplotes are the cillia around it's bucal region. These help guide food into the buccal cavity
it also has many cirri that multiply near the sexual stage of its life so that the offspring can have the essential cirri
buccal cavity
