Which part of the amoeba can be compared to that of the mouth in humans

Hi Ananya,

An amoeba is a unicellular organism.

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.

From the above explanation, the pseudopodia (which is the false feet) of amoeba can be compared with the mouth of humans.
