Animal Cells

Animal Cell Structure -Cell is the basic unit of any living organism.They have different parts called organelles ,which carry out different functions


Plant Cells

Plant cells are easier to identify because they have a protective structure called a cell wall made of cellulose. Plants also have organelles such as the green chloroplast or large, water-filled vacuoles. Chloroplasts are the key structure in the process of photosynthesis.


What's the difference

Beyond size, the main structural differences between plant and animal cells lie in a few additional structures found in plant cells. These structures include: chloroplasts, the cell wall, and larger vacuoles
