Pangaea, Pangæa, or Pangea was a supercontinent that existed during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras, forming about 300 million years ago and beginning to rift around 200 million years ago, starting to form the component continents into their current configurations; the start of this process has been recorded here. The single global ocean which surrounded Pangaea was named Panthalassa.
