I believe that Paramecia are single celled organisms that can live on their own without having to be attached to something to survive or get life support off of another living organism. Paramecia are very cool! They are very interesting to look at under the microscope because you can see right through them, they look like very little stretched out ovals. The Paramecia move by using their hair like arms to move through their environment. When my group put red food dye in the tray that held them you could watch the Paramecia eat it so it turned the inside of the Paramecia red. The liquid was red to be able to tell if the Paramecia could eat on their own. This is what I've learned so far about Paramecia.
