How do you kill an animal?

Ten-thousand differnt ways to do so.

And protists are even more diverse than animals. There are the plant-like protists, and the animal-like protists.

My questions is: Why would you need to actively seek to kill one?

Probably revenge.

I'm pretty sure Giardia is a protist and I have much revenge to send that little bug....

Yes giardia is a protist. Internal parasite in the small intestine it is a single cell organism which has 2 nucleuses(is that the plural of nucleus?) and 8 flagels. Some people seem to think that giardia is a worm(my mother) :D NOT TRUE!!!

Have something to add here by the way: fungus like protists: mixomycota and oomycota

I think you have misspelled it a bit, my friend. It should be NUCLEI, with a single i at the end. :) Thanks friends!

We have members that do not have a primary language of English. Different spellings in different countries are to be expected. Type-o's happen as well.

As long as the point is driven across, there is no need to worry about exact spellings.

Yeah... On this forum hemoglobin is spelled in 3 or 4 different ways.
PS: "Nuclei with a single i. It is the same in romanian :D Dind't even see the double i"
