Majority are fresh-water organisms

Found in stagnant water

Have protein-rich layer called pellicle, instead of cell wall, which makes their body flexible

In the presence of sunlight, they behave like autotrophs; in the absence of sunlight, they behave like heterotrophs, predating on smaller organisms

Pigments are similar to those present in higher plants.

hope it helps u.
