Would "Elephants don't live in the Antarctic" also be correct?

I think the continent's name is Antarctica.

Yes, I'm just wandering if that alternative translation is acceptable. It's just like saying "Elephants don't live in the European Continent". It would sound more natural by omitting "continent" as wouldn't this be implied? Antarctica, Europe, Australia etc are continents
