Antarctica

Recommended Posts

I know there have been plant fossils found there, but have there been any animal fossils? If so, what kind of animals? I thought that since it is far away from everything, it must have been that way for a while(continents don't drift incredibly quickly) which means that when it was in a warmer spot, it definitely, could have still been so isolated making it such that the animals could not interbreed with others. This presents the possibility of quite unique life(somewhat like the case of Australia).

I remember reading about reptile fossils about the same time I heard about finding plant remains indicative of a tropical climate at some distant point in time. The book was talking about shifts in the earth's lithosphere. I will see if I still have it but I suspect I got it from the library.
