Even if geography isn’t ‘your thing’, you probably at least know that the world is that it is made up of 7 continents. Whether or not you can actually name those continents is a completely different story.
Now, it looks everything you thought you knew about the world is about to change. At least as far as the continents are concerned. It looks like there are actually 8 continents, and according to Lad Bible, “Zealandia used to be one of the world’s continents before it broke away from Australia 60 to 85 million years ago. It was also once attached to Antarctica, but detached from the frozen land mass a few million years earlier.” Is your mind blown yet?
Well, get ready to be even more shocked! Scientists are working to unlock the mysterious of this forgotten continent, and a recent exploration has revealed some pretty cool things.
Evidently, the majority (93%) of Zealandia is still under water, but that hasn’t stopped a group of determined scientists from wanting to take a further look.
