What is pseudopodia? does it have any role in the process of nutrition in amoeba?
Asked by pdcavita | 2nd Dec, 2017, 09:32: AM
Pseudopodia is a temporary projection of the surface of an amoeboid cell for purposes of eating or moving.
When an Amoeba, encounters a suitable organism, it pushes out two pseudopodia around the organism. The tips of the pseudopodia fuse with each other. As a result, the food is engulfed with a little surrounding water to form a food vacuole inside it.
