Differences of Animal and Plant Cells
A lot of differences are the looks. Plant cells are typticaly round to square while an animal cell, more specificly an parameciumis oval with little cilia lining it. Also another difference it what it has. Animal cell has a gullet, the cavity of the pharynx, while the plant doesn't have one. But a similarity is the both have nucleus which is the most useful organelle of the animal cell, paramecium. I conclude that both type of cells can be simimlar and different.
