Both plant and animal cells have cell membranes. Plant cells also contain what is called a cell wall. This cell wall gives plants cells much of its structure and makes them fairly rigid. In plant cells you are also likely to find chloroplasts which are used in photosynthesis, where as no animal cell will ever have a chloroplast.
