However, plant cells have the following additional organelles not found in animal cells:
permanent vacuole (which supports the cell by causing it to become turgid when full of fluid)
chloroplasts (which contain chlorophyll to trap sunlight to carry out photosynthesis)
cell wall (which provides the plant with support and structure)
