Researching how big these islands are, is very difficult. So if anyone know of other islands divided between at least two countries, and that are at least 50 km2 big, please let me know.

Dall Island appears to be wholly a part of United States. The island's southernmost point is the start of the line delimiting where Alaska and BC meet along the Alaska Panhandle, but none of the island's territory is in Canada.

Nice quiz, good concept. I got 23 but didn't know the names of the islands shared by Russia and China. It's strange how easy it is to forget such an obvious answer as Tierra del fuego! (I got it but only aftrer trying Chile and Argentina as possible countries).

Ah, you must be talking about either Kataja, Märket or Koiluoto. They're all really tiny, and I only include islands larger than 50 km2. Which island is divided by Denmark and Canada?

Possibly Hans? Although it's tiny (1.3 km2) and disputed rather than divided between Canada and Denmark (on behalf of Greenland)
