Hi Francisco,

It is a Pelomyxa, not a Trichamoeba.

Very nice and clear video. I think he has overeaten though. :)

Hello
Ferry thanks very much for your information.
I had doubts about Trichoamoeba and Pelomyxa, I was thinking it was Trichoamoeba because I think, Pelomyxa has hundreds of cores, but only a big core in Trichamoeba.
For me it's sometimes difficult correctly identify some amoebas so I'm very pleasured for your information.
Thanks Mitch, it really has a huge appetite.
Francisco
