How did continental drift affect the location of different organism?

Continental drift is the theory that the continents were once together. Fossils provide evidence that animals in different continents were once in the same location. For example, fossils of triolobites (prehistoric animals) are found in South America and in Africa. Some explorers thought that there was a land bridge that animals crawled on that crosses the ocean but their thinking is not logical because if there was a land bridge there is not a way for it to even form do to the horrific waves in the ocean. Therefore continental drift is a logical theory.
