Cell question, just because of my curiosity

  1. May 2, 2004 #1
    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,

    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.
