paramaecium caudatum has cillia all over their body so u easily figure out its locomotion.they reproduce both sexually n asexually(theybelong to porifera.)by asexual i mean binarry fission i.e one divides into two .sexual one is a longprocess.two paramaecia join n divide n redivide.....its too long for me to write.anyways final produt are 8 paramaecia. sorry i dont how the could be useful anyway

Your name screams, well I'll refrain from saying it, but they do in fact utilize cillia as a means of motility.

Wow I cannot believe their are S chassis bandwagoners trying to study Biology, is this for some kind of HS assignment?
