Why are unicellular creatures so small?

Question asked by: knowitall

Unicellular creatures are de facto small, because one cell is small.

As they are made up of one cell, they can't be big?

If you mean why are they evolutionary as such and not evolved, it is because being small and simple has many advantages over being larger.
