I will take a stab at those. If my memory from high school geography is correct, the answers are:

The Pyrennes
California - Mount Whitney and Death Valley
Russia - Lake Baikal
Lake Superior
Greenland

What is the only county in the United States to border 4 states?

What two towns in the lower 48 states are considered exclaves, i.e. town that is completely surrounded by a foreign country (in this case, Canada)?

What town in the U.S. is wholly contained within another state in this case, surrounded by water on all sides?

Where are the only fresh water sharks in the world located, and why is this the case?
