Caption: This scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image revealed some of the ultrastructural features seen on the surface of a number of Acanthamoeba polyphaga protozoa. Note the amorphous nature of the organisms’ exterior from which pseudopodia can extend. These pseudopodia enable the amoeba to move about, and grasp objects in its environment.
