Proof that Pangea existed

Some proof that Pangea, the Supercontinent, did exist is that scientists found fossils of the same animals and plants in South America, Africa, Antarctica, India and Australia. If the continents hadn't been joined together at some point then we wouldn't find fossils of the same species in continents that are so far away from each other because the animals wouldn't be able to get across the other side of the world. Also, the same types of rocks were found in South America and Africa. These rocks were found to have formed around the same time period.
