Both plants and animals are living organisms. There is a vast difference between both. It is due to this difference both are classified under entirely different kingdoms . Plants belong to kingdom plantae while animals belongs to kingdom animalia. The physical differences between plants and animals are also vivid. Plants cannot move by themselves but animals have the ability to move. Plants produces (not all) oxygen through a process known as photosynthesis while animals consume this oxygen and emits carbon dioxide . Animals have specialized vessels for transformation of energy and water called phloem and xylem . Animals lacks this but have substitutes for the purpose. The average life span of many plants are greater than that of animals. Plants have leaves but animals don’t . Plants are basically green in color but different animals have different colours. Plants have the uniqueness of forming fruits and flowers but animals don’t. There are so many differences between plants and animals. They may be microscopic to physical.
