Via MentalFloss:

A map of Pangea, the super continent that existed about 200-300 million years ago, with the countries of today superimposed upon it.

At the time what is now the east coast of the United States was bordered by Morocco and Mauritania.

What was to become Asia was missing the entire Indian subcontinent and Tibet.  They were stuck with Madagascar, Somalia, Antarctica and Australia before separating and beginning their drift north slamming into the rest of Asia and giving birth to the Himalayas from the resulting collision.

And South America and Africa fit together quite nicely don't you think?

  1. If all the land masses were here, what covered the rest of the world 200-300 million years ago ?
