Ciliates are unicellular protists that can be recognised by their hairlike 'cilia'. They use them for locomotion and for feeding. Some ciliates are very small, not much larger than the largest bacteria. Others like the 'trumpet animalcule' Stentor can reach a size of two millimetres so it can be seen with the naked eye. Paramecium does not become much larger than 0.3 mm! Here you can read more!
