Can any animals synthesize chlorophyll?

    No. One of the distinctive features of animals is the inability to photosynthesize, so they do not synthesize chlorophyll, the green pigment that is most commonly used for it. Instead, all animals are heterotrophs, meaning that they feed on other organisms.

    However, some animals can, in a way, contain chlorophyll inside them. A few nudibranchs (sea slugs) get it by growing symbiotic photosynthetic algae or protozoans inside of them.
