Caption: Differential interference contrast (DIC) light micrograph of an Amoeba proteus (right) using its long pseudopia to capture a Paramecium caudatum protozoan. The amoeba will close around the prey, engulphing and digesting it in a process called phagocytosis. Magnification: x160 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
