We always talk about what each continent has—which is the biggest, which has the longest river, which has the most people. Now let's see what each continent doesn't have. Here are some things that entire continents do without.

Asia and Europe are not separate landmasses. They are divided by the Ural Mountains.

Antarctica has no country. The U.S. and other countries have science stations here, but no nation owns the land.

Europe has no desert.

Africa, the world's hottest landmass, has no cold climate.

Australia has no active volcanoes.
