I really have no idea what this is. It was in a rock depression in a fairly shady spot. Near tidal mudflats.It was about 5 cm across.
It was a fairly thick layer of whitish material, and it looks a bit like some algae growing on its surface.
Growing on grass clippings.

This blob like organism was self propelled (no cillia or flagella). It surrounded different substances and engulfed them for food.
This protist was found in the pond water at the Louisa County High School campus. The microscope was used to view the protist clearer.
Protozoa are a diverse group of unicellular eukaryotic organisms, many of which are motile. Originally, protozoa had been defined as unicellular protists with animal-like behavior, e.g., movement. Protozoa were regarded as the partner group of protists to protophyta, which have plant-like behaviour, e.g. photosynthesis.
