Animal Cells vs. Plant Cells
We are made up of millions of animal cells, and s tree is made up of millions of plant cells.
You may be surprised how few differences there are between us and a tree, and how those differences and so crucial to whether or not we are a plant.
Animal cells don't have a thick cell wall surrounding them like plant cells do, all the animal cells have are a thin membrane. Animal cells also have little circles called Lysosome inside them, although plant cells have little circles in them as well they are called Amyloplast and those are different I believe.
Plant cells have much larger Vacuoles than a animal cell and have chloroplast in them too so it make it different structure, as well does the fact that plant cells are square and animal cells are circular.
In many more way they are the same, they all are filled with cytoplasm have one centrosome, a rough ER and a smooth ER, one nucleus with a nucleolus and was surrounded by a nuclear membrane.
Each also has several mitochondria's, some ribosomes, and one Golgi body.
Our cells have much more in common with plants than not, so they are technically like our brothers and sisters.
