Same rock types and identical plant and animal fossils of the same age have been found in rocks in Africa and South America

- Example : Africa - Cheetah, South America - Jaguar
Types of rocks found on each continent today show similar strata and ages. Mountain range on the coast of West Africa disappear then suddenly reappear again on the coast of South America.
