      @LAX well done for asking

      A protozoan is a microscopic (cannot be viewed by the naked eye but only using a microscope because they are very very small) single-celled organism that belongs to a group in the Protista Kingdom. One of my favourite organisms is a protozoan. It is called Plasmodium and causes malaria.
