Unicellular organisms colorful kingdom
According to belief, single-celled organisms were first inhabitants on Earth, and their colorful world is deservedly called the kingdom by scientists. The oldest microorganisms are considered to be bacteria and archaea. In fact, Colorful single-celled animals and prokaryotes were discovered by Antonie Philips van Leeuwenhoek – a Dutch tradesman and scientist, known as “the Father of Microbiology”. A unicellular organism consists of only one cell. These organisms live together, and each cell in the colony is the same. However, each cell must carry out all life processes in order for that cell to survive. In contrast, even the simplest multicellular organisms have cells that depend on each other in order to survive. Most unicellular organisms are of microscopic size and are thus classified as microorganisms. However, some unicellular protists and bacteria are macroscopic and visible to the naked eye.

Friendship of bear cub and chimpanzee. Five-month-old grizzly bear cub Bam Bam and 16-month-old chimp Vali have been inseparable since being introduced at the Myrtle Beach Safari park in South Carolina, where they were born. Park owner Bhagavan Antle said staff decided to see whether the pair would hit it off when Bam Bam reached the same size as Vali – even though bears grow much faster than chimps. ‘We got them out there playing on a sunny day and they went on and on for hours,’ he said. ‘Neither of them wanted to quit. They would lie down and fall asleep at our feet, wake back up and start wrestling again.’ Visitors delight in watching them wrestling and playing tag. In the wild, Bam Bam would live in the wilds of North America, while Vali’s natural home is the jungle of central Africa.
