    The biggest differences are that plant cells have a solid cell wall, not just a membrane like animal cells, and that plant cells also have chloroplasts to facilitate photosynthesis.

    plant cell has cell-wall but animal cell does not have it. plant cell has a single large vacuole while animals has has one or multiple small vacuoles. plant cells have chloroplast but animal cells do not have it. plant cells have plastids while animal cell do not.

    Yes, just like sleepyfox stated, plant cells have a solid cell wall while animal cells just have a membrane. Animal cells have a roundish (iregular) shape while plant cells are sorta rectanuglar (regular). Animal cells have one or more small vacuoles (much smaller than plant cells) and plant cells have one, large central vacuole taking up 90% of cell volume. Centrioles are present in all animal cells yet only present in lower plant forms. Animal cells don't have chloroplasts but plant cells do because they make their own food. Cytoplasm is in both animal and plant. Endoplasmic Reticulum (Smooth and Rough) is present in bith types of cells. Ribosomes are also in both cells. Mitochondria are in both cells as well. Plastids are only in plant cells. Golgi Apparatus is in animal cells and plant cells. Microtubules/ Microfilaments are in both. Flagella may be found in some animal cells and some plant cells. Lysosomes occur in the animal cell's cytoplasm while they are ussually not evident in plant. Nucleus is in both types of cells. Cilia is present in both although it is very rare in plant. Hope this helped :)

    Plant cell 1.Plant cells are usually larger than animal cells. 2. The plasma membrane of a plant cell is surrounded by a rigid cell wall made up of cellulose. 3. Plastids (leucoplast, chloroplast, chromoplast) are present in plant cells. 4. Vacuoles are present in abundance. They are larger in size. 5. Plant cells have many simpler units of Golgi complex, called dictyosomes. 6. Centrosome and centrioles have not been found in plant cells (except in a few lowerplants). 7. Cytokinesis takes place by cell plate formation. 8. Plant cells usually have a regular shape. Animal Cell 1. Animal cells are generally small in size. 2. Cell is absent. 3. Plastids are absent. 4. Vacuoles are less in number and smaller in size. 5. Animal cells have a single highly elaborate Golgi complex. 6. Animal cells possess cenrosome and centrioles. 7. Cytokinesis takes place by constriction during cell division.
