What are facts about a Euglena?
Interesting fact about the Euglena... The interior of the euglena contains cytoplasm (a jelly-like substance). Another intrestin fact...... Towards the end of the euglena is a star-shaped structure called the contractile vacuole. The contractile vacuole helps the euglena remove excess water, without it the euglena could hold to much water due to osmosis that the euglena would explode.
