An animal like protist is called a PROTOZOA.


Protista is a kingdom of single celled eukaryotic organisms. The organisms included in protista could be divided in three distinct groups, depending on their evolutionary tendencies.

Protists are nutritionally highly diversified. There are autotrophic protists, holozoic protists and saprotrophic protists. Holozoic protists show animal-like nutrition and are called Protozoa.

Protozoans are called animalcules or small animals .
