Structure of an amoeba

Amoeba proteus is a microscopic living organism which consists of a single cell. Like all cells, it has cytoplasm, nucleus, cell membrane and a variety of inclusions in the cytoplasm. It is about 0.3 mm across and inhabits the mud at the bottom of fresh water ponds. Although it is just a single cell, it exhibits all the essential functions of any living organism.
