Best Answer

There were four peices of evidence:

1. He noticed that the some of the continents fit together like a puzzle.

2. He found the same fossils in both continents, this is only possible if they were once touching each other.

3. There were the same kind of mountains in Canada and Europe, the only way this is possible is if the two plates once collided.

4. 250 million years ago there were ice sheets in southern Africa, India, and Australia and this is only possible if they once touched Antartica.
