Transcript of The Euglena Cell:

The Euglena Cell:
Euglena Cell in Motion With the Flagellum:
Goes though process called Mitosis
It spits itself in half and becomes two different cells
Can only be well fed and be in good temperature to reproduce
Reproduces best in warm temperatures
What are Euglena Cells?
Combination of Plant and Animal
Can make their own food like Plants but can also eat other things such as animals
Scientists argued on which category to put them in
Right now, they are considered neither
Most scientists place them in the Protists Kingdom
Protists Kingdom- Organisms that have single complex cells
How do they look?
Euglena's body is only one cell, so they are very small
Have a long hair-like thing that stretches from its body called a Flagellum
Has a red eye spot, which directs the cell to the light
Instead of plant walls, have a pellicle
Helps keep the cell's shape
In center of cell, is the nucleus
Contains cell's DNA and controls cell's activities
Interior of cell contains jelly like fluid substance called cytoplasm
Contractile Vacuole helps cell remove excess water and waste
Preys and Predators:
Preys on other tiny organisms such as; Amoeba, Green Algae, Rotifer, Paramecium,
Examples of some predators of Euglena include; Baby fish, Mussels, Frogs, Flatworms, Crane Flies and Salamanders (in tadpole/ larval stages)
Ingredients used for my Cell model:
I used; Green Jello,Black licorice, Jelly beans, Spearmint leave gummies, Cherry sours, and a Green gum ball
Green jello: Shape of cell
Black licorice: Flagellum
Yellow and Black Jelly beans: Paramylon bodies & Mitochondria
Spearmint leave gummies & Green gum ball: Chloroplasts
Cherry sours: Eye spot
Thanks For Watching!
Can be found in marine or fresh water sources Ex. Ponds, Swamps, Water streams, Lakes
Live in diversity of aquatic habitats
Ideally with exposure to light and lots of algae
Can survive in fresh salt water
