chlorophyl Plants take in nutrients by absorption from their environment, and animals take in nutrients by bringing food inside their bodies and digesting it internally. Many plants, but not all, produce food by photosynthesis (using chlorophyl). Animals also have no cell walls, and all plants have cell walls.
