Texas Doesn’t Look All That Big Next Compared To Africa
While Texas is the second-largest state in the United States by area, right behind Alaska, it is nothing in comparison to the world’s second-largest continent, Africa. Everything might be bigger in Texas, but when the state is dropped down on top of Africa, it looks about as big as one of the countries– which is still impressive!
To put it in a bit of perspective for those who enjoy numbers, Africa has an area of 30,370,000 sq km, while Texas doesn’t even break one million sq km, coming in at 676,587 sq km. This means Africa is 45 times larger than the state!
