the flagella is a sticky substance in the cell that helps with the transportation... A long, threadlike appendage, especially a whiplike extension of certain cells or unicellular organisms that functions as an organ of locomotion.

Yes!! Cilia and flagella are unicellular organisms main source of locomotion (movement), they help propel the cell/organism


Protozoans that have Flagella are Protozones with "Tails" that propel the organism through water. This helps the Protozoa move through water like an animal.


In terms of structure,flagella is long and not more than two situated at the TOP of an organism e.g while cilia is a hairy-like structure found round the body of an organism e.g paramecium

They have locomotive organelles. Ex:- Amoeba have pseudopodia,bacteria have flagella.


The word "flagella" is plural so the proper term to use for this question would be "flagellum". A flagellum is an organ of locomotion in single cell organisms. In other words, the flagellum help the organism move around.


Flagella are long whip like structures that the organism has only one or two of. Cilia are numerous hair like structures that cover most of the organisms surface. Both impart locomotion to the organism.


The trichomonas organism moves using a number of long flagella. It's movement is quite distinctive under the microscope.
