You can’t escape amoebas without needing one of the most essential things for life, water. Amoebas can be found in any source of freshwater, even while taking a bath an amoeba can infect you. You may even think that a pool is safer than the ocean because there is no fish, but there is something else lurking in the water, there is a trophozoite, the form of an amoeba which can infect you. Make sure to plug your nose in the pool or you might get a trophozoite eating your brain cells.
