This account is mainly to teach you students in the senior high school different topics in the various subjects and will be a form or revision if you already know the topic. Today's topic is about an unicellular organism known as the amoeba.
Amoeba is a unicellular organism that belongs to kingdom protoctista and phylum rhizopoda. It is about 0.25mm in length and can only be seen under a microscope. Amoeba lives at the bottom of shallow muddy ponds, ditches and damp soil.
Amoeba has its body bound by a cell membrane .In the cell membrane is a clear outer layer called ectoplasm and greyish inner layer called endoplasm. The ectoplasm and endoplasm come together to form the cytoplasm. The nucleus appears as a dense patch and lies in the endoplasmic. The endoplasm contains food vacuole consisting of a bubble of water surrounding particles of partly digested food. The endoplasm also contains the contractile vacuole. The diagram of the amoeba is as shown below. Thank you
