A lost continent that sunk 100 million years ago has been discovered underneath New Zealand.
The sunken world has been dubbed Zealandia as is mostly submerged beneath the South Pacific.
Zealandia stretched five million square kilometres (1.9 million square miles) and was 94 percent underwater, according to research published in the Geological Society of America’s Journal, GSA Today.
This makes it the size of greater India.
It was part of the Gondwana super-continent but broke away about 100 million years ago, researchers claimed.
