One of the most primitive creatures with a body, placazoans were discovered when they developed on the walls of an aquarium in the 1880s. Though they are flat plate shaped disks that only have four different types of cells, placazoans show the division of labor between cells to qualify as an actual multi-cellular body. Some cells take care of movement while others handle digestion of food. Placazoans have never been observed in a natural habitat.
