Group of Protozoans
Protozoans are mainly divided into four major groups.
They mainly found in freshwater, sea water and in moist soil.
Take catch their food / prey using pseudopodia

Flagella helps them to move.
E g. – Trypanosoma etc.
They are aquatic.
They have cilia To Move food into gullet and for locomotion.
E.g. – Paramoecium etc.
Protozoans / protozoa which have infective spore like stage in life cycle are called sporozoans.
E.g. – Plasmodium etc.
