If a cell becomes too large, then not enough nutrition can get in fast enough and not enough waste can get out fast enough. In larger organisms, there are just way more cells than in smaller organisms; the cells do not get bigger.
Asked in Genetics
Does the number of chromosomes correspond to the size of an organism?
No. All nuclei in every cell in every organism are roughly the same size, no matter the number of chromosomes. Since all corresponding cells (neural cells in elephants and neural cells in humans, egg cells in chickens and egg cells in squirrels) are the same size, the size of the organism depends on the NUMBER of cells, not the size. Thus, the number of chromosomes has no effect on the size of the cell, and thus no effect on the organism's size. ...

Is the elephant cell have the same size of our cells?
Yes they are the same size, our cells and elephant cells are all animal cells, the cells within our bodies differ in size according to their function as do any other multicellular organisms, but if you took a cell from the heart of a human or from an elephant they would be close to each other in size. ...
Are all the cells the same size and shape?
Answer animal and plants cells are the same size, they are about 10 micrometre. But bacteria or other invisible living things have dif sizes. THey have pretty much the same size, but some cells have bigger or smaller organelles inside. Does that help you?...

Do the shapes of human Cells change from one person to another?
No, they don't. There are over 200 different types of cells in a human body. All have different functions and different sizes and shapes. But, each type is of the same size in every human. For example, the muscle cells would be of the same size in all the humans. the red blood cells are different from the muscle cells in terms of their function and their size and shape; however, all human will have the same size of red blood cells. Hope...
Asked in Earth Sciences, Microbiology, Genetics
Are all cells the same size or shape?
no not all cells are the same size. Cells come in different sizes depending on where the cell is found or its organelles inside. Some cells have a flagellum that hepls it move and some cells have cilia that hepl it move these are two different ways of moving and thay are different sizes. ...
Asked in Genetics
Are all cells the same size?
No, cells arent all the same size. The size of a cell depends on the organism it belongs to and its function, for example a bacterial cell would be a maximum of around 10microns whereas an average human cell is between 10 and 100 microns, with size varying as I said dependant on function. ...
Asked in Biology, Genetics, Cell Biology (cytology)
Are the cells of a smaller organism smaller or larger?
This is a good time for "Yes... and no." It all depends on the type of organism. In animals, which should be the both of us (If you are a human :) all cells are generally the same size. Of course, cells like nerve cells and muscle cells might not count in the reason that they can stretch to be relatively large or be the same size as other cells. For the most part, the same types of cells (i.e. bone cells,...

Do large animals have more CELLS than smaller animals?
All animals have the same size of cells because a large cell is inefficient and we have evolved to where our cells are just the right size to have the greatest efficiency. Save ...
Asked in Genetics
Does the size and number of cells depend upon the size of the organism?
size don't matter because all the cells are in the same size.so the number of cells matter.for example an elephant has so many cells so it's huge but in the case of an ant it has less number of cells so it's small ...
