Testate amoebae are a kind of protozoa that can be very common in soil. This creature is similar to a snail, with a soft body protected by an outer shell. Amoebae move by forming “pseudopods” or false feet to push or pull themselves around. We often see testate amoebae in forest soils along with many fungal hyphae, but they can also be easy to find in compost or soils with plenty of organic material.
