What is Amoeba?

An amoeba is a unicellular organism.

The cell membrane is a thin layer of protein and fat that surrounds the amoeba that allows some substances to pass into the cell and blocks other substances.

Amoeba follows holozoic nutrition, which takes place in organisms that take solid or liquid food inside their body.

They do not have any specialized organ for nutrition, so they obtain their food by the process of endocytosis, and the entire process is carried through the body surface with the help of pseudopodia which is a false foot.
