Antonio Snider-Pellegrini (Born::1802–Died::1885) was an American geographer and scientist living in Paris, France who produced, in 1858, two maps representing his version of how the Americas and the African continent could, once have fit together, then later separated. His model theorized about the possibility of continental drift, anticipating Wegener's theories concerning Pangaea by several decades. Pellegrini also proposes huge decreasing of the Earth’s size during the days of biblical Genesis.
