Actually respiration does not different in animals and plants.


Celular respiration occurs in the mitochondria in both animals and plants. The sugars in both plants and animals are oxidized creating energy.

The only difference in respiration is that plants create their own sugars to be oxidized for energy. Animals must get their sugars from autotrophs or plants.
