The torrid zone includes most of Africa, Southern India, Southern Asia, Indonesia, New Guinea, Northern Australia, Southern Mexico, Central America, Northern South America.
Temperate Zones – perfect vacation zone – has mild temperatures – between the two tropics – Arctic Circle in the North And the Antarctic Circle in the South
North Temperate Zone includes Great Britain, Europe, Northern Asia, North America, and Northern Mexico.
South Temperate zone includes Southern Australia, New Zealand, Southern South America, and South Africa.
Frigid Zones – coldest part of the planet – lie beyond the Arctic and Antarctic circles – day-night cycles are super weird – 6 months of daylight and 6 months of night
