Animal and plant cell?

A plant cell and an animal cell in some cases contain different parts. A plant cell has a cell wall which protects the cell and an animal cell also has a cell wall. They both have cell membranes,mitchondrion, nucleus and cytoplasms. They also have carbohydrates in common,but there is a difference between them: The carbohydrate stored in the plant cell is called starch grains and the carbohydrate stored in the animal cell is called Glycogen Granules. The other parts of the plant cell: Vacoule Chloroplast All the other parts of the animal cell are included in the plant cell.
