North America

North America has about 565 million and nearly 7.5 percent of the worlds population. It covers 24,709,000 square kilometers about 16.5 of the worlds land it has 23
countries. The highest point is Denali which is 6,168 meters above sea leave. The War Department owned the land on both sides of the river where the golden gate bridge was going to be built, it had to authorize the construction of the bridge. A temporary construction permit was granted on December 24, 1924, and a final permit was issued on August 11, 1930. Some of the food is: Hot Dog, Fried Chicken, Apple Pie, Bread, Jerky and lots more. The drinks: Coco Cola, Pepsi, Dr pepper, monster and more.

Many of the stories surrounding the Northern Lights in North American communities arose from the belief that they were the souls of departed ancestors. It was even believed that the lights might be the spirits of the animals they hunted. But not all North American legends painted the Northern Lights as quite so kind-hearted. Some Native American stories say the Northern Lights are torches held by the spirits who were tasked with leading the souls of the recently dead over the abyss to the land of brightness. Some tribes in Canada and northern Michigan believed the creator of the Earth, Nanabozho, moved to the far north and lit a huge fire. The Northern Lights was a reflection of this fire, created to let his people know that even though he was far away, he was still thinking of them.

Animals
1. American Beaver
The American beaver is one of only two living species of beaver, the other being the Eurasian beaver. It's the world's second-largest rodent (after the Capybara of South America) and can get up to weights of up to 50 or 60 pounds. American beavers are broad animals, with compact trunks and short legs, and also have webbed feet and broad, flat tails covered with scales. And, of course, American beavers are constantly building dams—aggregations of sticks, leaves, mud and twigs that provide these oversized rodents with deep-water habitats in which to hide from predators.

2. The Brown Bear
The brown bear is one of the largest and most powerful carnivores of North America. This bear has non-retractable claws that its uses primarily for digging, and it can run at a considerable speed despite its half-ton size—some individuals have been known to attain speeds of up to 35 mph in pursuit of prey. Befitting their name, Brown Bears possess a coat of black, brown or tan fur with longer outer hair, often of a different color; they're also equipped with sizable muscles in their shoulders that give them the strength necessary to dig.

3. The American Alligator
Not quite as dangerous as its reputation, but still populous enough in the southeastern U.S. to make residents extremely anxious, the American alligator is a true North American establishment. Some adult alligators can attain lengths of over 13 feet and weights of half a ton, but most are more modestly sized, even given the propensity of Florida condo owners to vastly exaggerate an alligator's specs when calling 911 and having intruders fished out of their swimming pools. By the way, it's never a good idea to feed an American alligator, which habituates it to human contact and makes fatal attacks more likely.

4.The American Moose
The largest member of the deer family, the American moose has a large, heavy body and long legs, as well as a long head, a flexible upper lip and nose, large ears, and a prominent dewlap that hangs from its throat. The fur of the American moose is dark brown (almost black) and fades during the winter months. Males grow large antlers (the largest known of any extant mammal) in the spring and shed them in the winter; their supposed habit of befriending flying squirrels.
