An amoeba hunting for food III
When the amoeba concentrates on catching food using one or two pseudopodia, the remaining pseudopodia become very short. When many food particles approach all at once, the amoeba becomes confused and cannot decide which pseudopodium to extend. When this happens, the hunt is a complete failure.
