Is there any organism that has only one cell ? If any, what is that ? and how can it lead its life ? Does it need to develop whereas it is undividable ?

Thanks

Regards,

The are more kinds of unicellular organism on this world than there are kinds of multicellular organisms.. bacteria, protozoa, unicellular algae, unicellular fungi or yeasts are the main groups..

Actually it is Lion's corner, from the corner house near the Leeuwenpoort (Lion’s Gate) at Delft in Holland, which was owned by his father.
