Cartoon of plant cell with chloroplasts, vacuole and cell wall generating glucose

Plant Cells

Plant cells and animal cells are both eukaryotic cells. Even though they have a lot of similarities they are different. One of the differences that this cartoon is playing on is the ability of plant cells to generate their own glucose. This is made possible due to the chloroplasts. Animal cells on the other hand need to get their glucose from an outside source.

Just to show how cool the chloroplasts look like below is a video by Microscopic World showing cytoplasmic streaming in plant cells.
