Animal and Plant Cells

Similarities

  • They both contain a nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria and ribosomes.

Differences

  • Plant Cells are larger than an Animal Cells (due to the plant cell having a vacuole)
  • Plant cells have a more regular shape than Animal Cells
  • Plant Cells have thicker walls than Animal Cells (due to the Plant's Cell wall which holds the shape)
  • Plant cells contain a vacuole, chloroplasts and a cell wall.

Overall comparison

The only similarity the Plant and Animal cells have is that they both contain a nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria and ribosomes. However, the plant contains extra parts which consist of a vacuole, chloroplasts and a cell wall. Furthermore, the Plant Cells are larger, have a more regular shape and thicker walls than the Animal cells.
