MAP AND GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION
Take a quiz on Antarctica

Antarctica is a continent that is now at the south pole of the Earth.

The Antarctic was at the equator during the Cambrian period, roughly 500 million years ago. As the continents drifted atop the more liquid interior layers of the Earth, the Antarctic drifted south during the time of the dinosaurs (the Mesozoic Era) when it was attached to Australia, had no glaciers, and housed many animals, including some dinosaurs. Over the millennia, it drifter farther south, separated from Australia, and is now located over the South Pole of the Earth.
