Basic unit of life for organisms whose chromosomes are surrounded by a nuclear membrane.

Eukaryotic cells are the cellular basis of animals, plants, fungi, and protists. See by contrast prokaryotic cell.

The following video is a bit overwhelming, though mostly accurate. Beware however inappropriate use of "cell wall" in places when "cell membrane would be more appropriate as well as the story of the origin of mitochondria, which happened well before there were any animals on !
