Caption: Amoeba. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an Amoeba proteus protozoan (blue). This is a freshwater protozoan which feeds on bacteria (two seen, green) and smaller protozoa. It moves by extending a pseudopod (false foot) from its body and moving its cytoplasm into it. Several pseudopodia are seen extending from its cell body here. It feeds by engulfing its prey. Magnification: x420 at 4x5 inch size.
