I tend to agree with you.  They are in the southern hemisphere, but discussion
of which continent they are on is meaningless without an idea of the time scale.
Given sufficient time, ANY continent could be in the southern hemisphere.  Using
the names of animal species as evidence of locale is also meaningless, since
animals & birds have an annoying habit of migrating from one continent to
another (vis. horses, lions, opussums, the Galapagos islands, and humanity
