Multicellular organisms are organisms that consist of more than one cell, in contrast to single-cell organisms. Most life that can be seen with the naked eye is multicellular, as are all animals (except for specialized organisms such as Myxozoa) and land plants.

Additional Details added 2 years ago
multicellular organism, an organism composed of many cells, which are to varying degrees integrated and independent. The development of multicellular organisms is accompanied by cellular specialization and division of labour; cells become efficient in one process and are dependent upon other cells for the necessities of life.

Specialization in single-celled organisms exists at the subcellular level; i.e., the basic functions that are divided among the cells, tissues, and organs of the multicellular organism are collected within one cell. Unicellular organisms are sometimes grouped together and classified as the kingdom Protista. See protist.
