Plant Cells and Animal CellsEdit

Plant cells have some different features than animal cells. If you look at a plant cell under a microscope, you will notice a cell wall. The cell wall gives plants structure and support. Which is why it is found in plant cells, not animals. Another major difference between plant and animal cells is that a plant cell has no chloroplasts, which is the pigment for photosynthesis. Plants also have large vacuels. Animal cells have centrioles and plant cells do not. One thing to remember is that, while the two cells are different in someways, all of the other organelles are found in both plant and animal cells.
