How are animal cells and plantcells diff?

the differences are that plant cells have chloroplasts ( which make them green), and cell walls (the hard cover of the cell that gives the cell a shape), and animal cells don't have any of those. also, plant cells are cubed, and animal cells are like globs. animal cells remind me of an off-shape circle. they are ovaly! lol!! hope i helped!!
