Is there any example of currently living organisms that shows close resemblance to both being a plant and an animal?

What is the plant with the closest possible resemblance to animals, and What is the animal with the closest possible resemblance to plants?

  • $\begingroup$ It should be stressed that any resemblence found would be due to convergent evolution: natural selection leading to similar solutions from diverged evolutionary histories. $\endgroup$ – user3934 Jul 5 '13 at 15:36
