Are animals capable of photosynthesis like plants: scientists answer



Some animals can use the properties of photosynthesis to their advantage. So, sakoglossan eat algae and retain their chloroplasts for a long time in their body. This process of chloroplast accumulation is called kleptoplasty.

Other animal species – like corals – take a different approach. They interact with these algae – zooxanthellae – and thanks to them acquire a certain shade, as well as receive energy.
