''Blepharisma'' feed on a variety of smaller organisms, including [[bacteria]], [[flagellate|flagellate algae]], [[rotifer]]s, other ciliates and even smaller members of the same species. Experiments with ''Blepharisma undulans'' have shown that cannibalism causes gigantism. When individuals are given a diet of smaller ''Blepharisma'', or certain ciliates (particularly ''Colpidium colpoda''), they grow to a relatively enormous size. As long as their diet remains unchanged, cannibal giants will divide to produce more giants. When large prey become unavailable, the offspring will revert to normal size.<ref> {{cite journal | title = Cannibalism and Gigantism in Blepharisma | journal = Transactions of the American Microscopical Society | date = 1938 | first = Arthur | last = Giese | volume = 57 | issue = 3 | pages = 245–255| id = | doi = 10.2307/3222693}}</ref>
