Amoeba belongs to the protozoan genus. It was discovered in the year 1757 by August Johann Rosel. It is a unicellular organism that has a number of organelles and cytoplasm. These organelles along with the cytoplasm are surrounded by a cell membrane that keeps them intact.
The process of food storage and digestion takes place in the vacuoles. The movement of Amoeba is through a large tubular pseudopod that is located at its interior. This pseudopod helps in movement as well as food location and intake.
