Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Primary endosymbiosis is the process in which a eukaryote engulfs another living prokaryote.

Secondary endosymbiosis is when a eukaryote cell engulfs another eukaryote cell that has undergone primary endosymbiosis.

So in short, a eukaryote feeds on a prokaryote(primary). Then the eukaryote is fed onto by another eukaryote.(secondary)

Basically it is one eukaryote feeding on another prokaryote via a fellow eukaryote.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
