Protozoa are unicellular, eukaryotic, heterotrophic organisms. Most of the protozoa species have cilia, flagella, and pseudopodia.

Parapodia are lateral appendages that help in swimming and are predominantly found in annelids and several groups of sea snails and sea slugs. In most species of annelids, parapodia is mainly involved in anchorage, gas exchange, locomotion and protection.
