THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What is the world's second largest continent?

Sure, we all know that Asia is the largest continent of the seven that are on Earth. But does the name of the second largest continent roll off your tongue quite as smoothly? The title of the world’s second largest continent belongs to Africa. And it wins in this category for both area of space it takes up, as well as the population of the continent.

Africa has a land mass area of 30,244,050 square kilometers, or 11,677,240 square miles. At 20.3% of the world’s total land area, this means that Africa accounts for almost one quarter of that alone! Africa also has an astounding population with 800 million people occupying the land. Africa also has one of the richest and most diverse histories of all of the seven continents in the world!
