• Some Archaebacteria are heterotrophic (get food from another source) and some are autotrophic (make their own food). They can be chemotrophs, which means they make their own food from chemicals around them. If their own food, archaebacteria can eat hydrogen gas, carbon dioxide, and sulfur.


  • Eubacteria can be autotrophic (able to produce food on their own) or heterotrophic (they consume organic compounds produced by other organisms). Some Eubacteria metabolize (digest) remains of plants and animals and release valuable nutrients into the ground.

    One may also ask, is archaebacteria a Heterotroph or Autotroph? Originally Answered: Is archaebacteria cosidered heterotrophic or autotrophic? Archaebacteria are classified as autotrophs. They make their food from the basic materials in their environment like carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, metals and simple organic molecules such as sugar.

    Likewise, people ask, how do archaebacteria reproduce?

    Archaea reproduce asexually by binary or multiple fission, fragmentation, or budding; mitosis and meiosis do not occur, so if a species of archaea exists in more than one form, all have the same genetic material. Both bacteria and eukaryotes, but not archaea, make spores.

    Which kingdoms make their own food?

    This kingdom is made up of species that do not really easily fit into other kingdoms such as the plant, animal, and fungi kingdom. Some protists, such as the paramecium and amoeba, feed on other organisms while others such as algae are able to make their own food through the process of photosynthesis.
