Amoeba

Post your creations here. It can be either a cool genome or an interesting ecosystem. Indicate if you designed it yourself or if it was created through evolution, or both :). File, picture, or video is required.

I dont think we can call this as amoeba
I modifate and make another version of amoeba

They have an interesting way to reproduce and sometimes if you lucky there is leader/queen

That giant 36-celled bacteria is amazing!!. Its not only a predator, but also omnidirectional. There is comment on youtube asking about a deathstar-like organism and I think this fits the case. Does it reproduce?

I dont think this thread is exclusively for amoebas :lol:, maybe more like (mostly huge) multi-celled organisms that mimics real life microorganisms. I redone my paramecium :

And I kinda like organisms with alot of flagellocytes so I try to make a serpent out of it (which kinda failed). I named in Skyfish because it looks like the mythological creature of the same name. Check it out on google :)

And lastly I think this paramecium kinda mimics Alast's Trilobite abit so this one reproduce by fission to give it a twist. The shape is kinda... bleh :? I dont know how to keep their adhesin without interfering with its reproduction

I think I might be able to make one with sexual reproduction with pseudo"conjugation bridge".

Nice paramecium c4!
I think your right,We should make a topic about mimicing real life microorganism!

This is a modification of the initial amoeba, with temporary unattached Flagellocytes produced inside the ring. I tried to mimimize escaping Flagellocytes, with tighter adhesins, larger Flagellocytes, and Glueocytes on the ring to catch and re-absorb the Flagellocytes. I had to add more Keratinocytes to protect the whole ring. Sort of a work in progress... or maybe it's finished, I haven't decided. ;)

What colors should an amoeba be? :?

It probably gets too much help from light in its adult form.
And Flagellocytes should have a stronger effect.

Okay, now it dies if nutrients are reduced to 0, and the Flagellocytes have more force, which does also does a better job of changing the amoeba's shape.

Edit: No Photocytes in the adult stage is an easy change.

Great job reducing the need of photocyte! :shock: . Color-wise there are alot of variants of Amoebas, from brownish-green to yellowish and mostly transparant. And if we use Electron Microscope we didnt even see colors, only black and white.

I picked green because that is what most people imagine Amoebas I think (based on cartoons :lol: , kinda like how cartoons picture brains with the color pink)

Ps. This is your 6th modification? :shock:

No, "f" is what I use for final versions of things. Though I probably did go through more than six variations, reducing light and nutrients, changing cells, etc.

If I called this an amoeba in a video, do you think many people would say, "That's not like an amoeba!" :x

Okay, I think this one is final. Most significant change is lower Viscosity to get more changes in shape from the amoebas.

Sure would be cool to use a Myocyte foot mechanism. I tried and it's sort of possible to get it working... sort of, but not really. The strategy is tge same as with Flagellocytes: Myocyte and Neurocyte die after a few cycles. However, the dynamic friction needed to allow the Myocyte mechanism to work results in the organism never being able to move much. Something that works along these lines is probably possible, but maybe not as large as the amoeba.
