an animal cell contains a nucleus as does the plant cell. the plant cell contains a cell wall but the animal cell contains a cell membrane. they bothe have the same purpose to protect the inner layer of the cells. a plant cell has a vacoule which is a storage area for cytoplasm and an animal cell does not. a plant cell also contains chloroplast which is a pigment to give the plant cells its green color.
