Caption: Light micrograph of an amoeba, Chaos carolinense preparing to ingest a colonial flagellate Pandorina, which appears as a green oval at left. Shelless amoeba, such as this one, move through the environment by means of protoplasmic extensions called pseudopodia, or false feet. The latter are also used to collect food. Pseudopodia flow around a food particle & draw it into the body of the protozoa where a food vacuole is formed & digestion occurs. Magnification X100 (at 35mm size).
