Have you heard about the lost continent of Lemuria? In the mid-1800s, a handful of scientists theorized about a lost landmass that once stretched across the southern Indian Ocean. Shaped like a triangle, Lemuria was said to have touched India’s southern point, southern Africa, and western Australia, and was home to enormous “Lemurians” with four legs.
