★ It is a very common misconception that "An ostrich egg is the largest living cell" however if you notice, a human being has the largest living cell inside it's own body and that is a "nerve cell".

★ Nerve cells (neurons) are cells that make up our nervous system i.e. brain,spinal cord,nerves etc, they are about 1.5 m, running from the base of the spine to the toes.

★ So, now you can say that a Neuron is the largest biological cell and not the Ostrich egg as "largness" refers to size and not to weight.
