Acanthamoeba are free-living amoebae which have no defined shape. They move by pseudopods, extensions of the cell membrane into which the cytoplasm moves. They normally live in soil, fresh water, brackish water, sewage, and biosolids, feeding on bacteria, and multiplying in their environmental niche as free living organisms. They are capable of causing infections of the human skin, lungs, eye and brain, and can feed on human tissue.
