Abstract The heliozoan Actinophrys captures its prey with the help of axopodia. Ingestion takes place by the growth of a bell-shaped pseudopodium which gradually surrounds, and finally, completely encloses the prey. Digestion then occurs. These events are demonstrated in computer animation together with electron micrographs. Time-lapse.
