Members of the phylum Sarcodina, or sarcodines, move via temprorary cytoplasmic projections known as pseudopods (SOO-doh-pahdz). Sarcodines are animallike protists that use pseudopods for feeding and movement. The most common known sarcodines are the amoebas, which are flexible, active cells with thick pseudopods that extend out of the central mass of the cell.

How does an ameoba get food?

the amoeba is a animal like protists, or protozoan, classified as a sarcodine because of its movement. the amoeba eats and moves with pseudopods. (Pseudopods from the Greek word ψευδοπόδια, ψευδός "fake, false" + πόδια"feet") the pseodopods will wrap around the targeted food source and absorb the molecules.the pseudopods move the cell by shifting the organelles and weight of the cell.
