Here are some other differences in plant and animal cells that you need to know:

Plants have larger vacuoles while animals have smaller vacuolesVacuoles store water or food for plants and even store waste products until they can be discarded. Plants need bigger vacuoles as they cannot move to satisfy their hunger or thirst.

Only plant cells have Plastids. They help in manufacturing or storing food.

Only animal cells have Centrioles. Centrioles help in the division of cells.
