Get your biology project more help by saving these printable diagrams of animal cell! After previously we have posted the printable plant cell diagrams, now it’s the time to enrich your biology knowledge by learning about the animal cell structures. All diagrams are available with the detailed explanation. Scroll down to see the diagrams!
As illustrated in the diagram of animal cell, there is an enormous range of animal cells, each adapted to a perform specific functions such as carrying oxygen, contracting muscles, secreting mucous, or protecting organs. The cells of animals are advanced and complex. Along with plants and fungi, the cells of animals are eukaryotic. Eukaryotic cells are relatively large cells with a nucleus and specialized structures called organelles. You can see the other angles of the illustration in the following diagrams of cell structures.
Although animal cells can vary considerably depending on their purpose, there are some general characteristics that are common to all cells. These include structures such as the plasma membrane, cytoplasm, nucleus, mitochondria, and ribosomes. Animal cells are generally smaller than plant cells and come in various sizes and tend to have irregular shapes, plant cells are more similar in size and are typically rectangular or cube shaped. The components of animal cells are centrioles, cilia and flagella, endoplasmic reticulum, golgi apparatus, lysosomes, microfilaments, microtubules, mitochondria, nucleus, peroxisomes, plasma membrane and ribosomes. Other diagrams are posted in the following images.
