    The presence of lysosomes is very rare on plant cells but it is usually present on the animal cells.

    Centrosomes are not present on the plant cells but it can be observed on the animal cells.

    The mode of nutrition of the plant cells is autotrophic but in animal cells, it is Heterotrophic.

    Mitochondria present in a least number in the plant cells but it present largely in the animal cells.

    Cilia is present in most of the animal cells but it’s absent in the plant cells.
