Caption: Shelled protozoan. Light micrograph of a shelled protozoan, Bolivina soluta, belonging to the order Foraminifera. The living cytoplasm of this organism can be extruded in the form of false feet (pseudopodia) through pores in the shell. The pseudopodia are used for movement and to capture food. Foraminifera protozoa are mostly marine, dwelling either on the sea bed or near the surface as plankton. The shells of Foraminifera creatures which lived in previous geological ages have become compressed and now are major constituents of chalk and limestone rocks. Magnification unknown.
