Yes, amoeba are single-celled protozoans. A plush one with a pseudopod and visible internal vacuoles (somehow!) would be cool.

Thumbs up Amoeba

Amoeba was one of the first living things on this planet, it evolved more and more into other things, until us! So yes I believ we should pay our respect to Amoeba by making it in GiantMicrobes form.

Amoeba are awesome and would make a great addition. Protists are very cool.

My research organism is an irregular shaped organism, it ranges from being rod shaped to clubs and Y's. I would LOVE it if they made Bifidobacterium spp.!!! I would have to order a ton of them to decorate my offices and labs .

Heck yeah! At least it's not a sperm or egg cell like some other people want. Ew.

Anyway, I think it should look somewhat like the link I provide below, even with the clear skin and stuff!

[edit] Maybe I shouldn't say skin, maybe membrane would be a better term. I was typing fast XP [end edit]
