This whole mount microscope slide is used to study the basic characteristics of the popular protist, Amoeba. Amoeba proteus is a single-celled organism that belongs to the phylum Sarcodina. Protozoa in this group move and gather food using pseudopodia, or "false feet," as can be seen on many specimens in this slide. In addition, students can see the nucleus, cytoplasm, and the cell membrane.
