An amoeba captures a diatom (video)
A microscope video that shows a testate amoeba extending a pseudopod towards a nearby diatom and capturing it (to feed on it). There are more diatoms visible that have already been captured. Near the very end of the video, I focus the microscope on the upper surface of the amoeba's shell to show its structure.

Why should you be amazed?
It was fascinating.
Why bother posting ... oh, could talk your ears off on that subject - don't even think about it!
