Sample taken from Mono Lake, California. Viewed with a Swift FM-31 Field Microscope and Nikon Coolpix 885 at 400X. Mono Lake is a soda lake [sometimes called an "alkali lake"] with a high salt content and a high pH. Such water is toxic to humans and most animals, yet a large population of microorganisms lives in Mono Lake. The algal cells are similar to Chlorella and coated the bottom of the shallows. Numbers of these Amoebae were found, busily munching the algal cells.
