Cilia: Small hair-like structures on the protist that wave back and forth to move it.

Flagella: A whip-like structure on the end of a protist that twirls to propel the organism.

Pseudopods: Foot-like extentions of cytoplasm that extend outward and pull the organism with it.

What are the characteristics of animal-like plantlike and fungus-like protists?

Like animals, animal-like protists are heterotrophs, and most are able to move from place to place to obtain food. Plantlike protists, which are commonly called algae,are extremely diverse. Like plants, algae are autotrophs. Most are able to use the sun's energy to make their own food. Like fungi, fungus-like protists are heterotrophs, have cell walls, and use spores to reproduce.


What are the characteristics of animal-like plantlike and funguslike protists?

Protists are eukaryotes that cannot be classified as animals, plants, or fungi.Like animals, animal-like protists are heterotrophs, and most are able to move from place to place to obtain food. But unlike animals, animal-like protists, or protozoans, are unicellular.Plantlike protists, which are commonly called algae, are extremely diverse. Like plants, algae are autotrophs. Most are able to use the sun's energy to make their own food.Like fungi, funguslike protists are heterotrophs, have cell walls, and use spores to reproduce. All funguslike protists are able to move at some point in their lives. The three types of funguslike protists are slime molds, water molds, and downy mildews.
