Hemoglobin and myoglobin are considered proteins correct?

What is the significance of them being proteins? Does that change anything? Do we need to identify if it's a protein?

I think as long as you know that they are examples of coordinate compounds you should be fine

Myoglobin has a heme complex + protein with Fe as the metal. Hemoglobin has 4 myoglobin molecules.

Also, Fe is the central metal in the heme complex, but it helps the complex carry oxygen throughout the bloodstream.
