Multicellular

Literally having more then one cell. Very basic multicellular organisms may have cells of only one type. In more complex multicellular organisms, cells are differentiated in order to perform specific tasks within the organism; groups of similar cells performing a function are known as a tissue.

All life that can be seen with the naked eye is multicellular.
