Amoeba eating a food particle

Amoeba eating a food particle

Aww, look! It's a cute little amoeba! It's trying to eat a food particle, and it is doing that while it is being contained in a petri dish. Don't worry, it will be returned to it's fish tank when it's done feeding. This amoeba is a genetic experiment. It hase more organelles that others, and therefore it won't starve. But, it is about the size of a quarter. At that size, most amoebas will die from starving and overflowing with waste materials. Yuck. But this one won't die from that. #amoeba #dish
