  3. 3. Like many other protists, the structure of Amoeba proteus is relatively simple. It is a single celled organism that appears transparent and gelatin like - with an arguably ”forever” changing shape, with a nucleus and membrane bound organelles (such as food vacuoles, contractile vacuoles, golgi apparatus, mitochondria etc. ).

  5. 5. A| gae, Bacteria and small protozoa form the main food of ameoba. The ameoba gathers its food with the help of Pseudopodia. Digestion takes place inside the food vacuole contains enzymes that can digest carbohydrate, lipids and proteins. Therefore the process of digestion in ameoba is Intracellular Digestion. The nutrients are absorbed into the cytoplasam surrounding the food vacuole. The waste materials are expelled through the body surface.
