Plants are stationary. They are autotrophic and do not have to move from one place to another in search of their food. Hence, their energy requirement is less and therefore, most of the plant tissues are dead with no living protoplasm.

On the other hand, animals are heterotrophic and have to move in search of food, mate, and shelter. Hence, they require more energy and therefore, most of the animal tissues are living.
