an ice shelf is a shelf of ice, which is floating on the water. There are several large ice shelves around Antarctica.
The Antarctic contains two rivers: Alph River and Onyx River. The Onyx is the largest river in Antarctica, 30 kilometres long, with several tributaries. Antarctica's buried la…kes are connected by a network of rivers moving water far beneath the surface. There is the Alph River and Onyx River which are glacial melt water streams.
From its Wikipedia entry: "The Ross Ice Shelf is the largest ice shelf of Antarctica (an area of roughly 487,000 square kilometres ((188,000 sq mi)) and about 800 ki…lometres ((500 mi)) across: about the size of France). It is several hundred metres thick. The nearly vertical ice front to the open sea is more than 600 kilometres (370 mi) long, and between 15 and 50 metres (50 and 160 ft) high above the water surface. Ninety percent of the floating ice, however, is below the water surface."

The world's largest ice shelves are the Ross Ice Shelf and the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf in Antarctica. The Ross Ice Shelf
Apparently, the oceans are warming around the Antarctic continent, thus melting the ice shelves from underneath.
The Antarctic ice sheet is the largest in the world with about 13.72 million sq km of permanent ice representing about 90% of the worlds ice and is over 4 km thick in pl…aces.

You may be thinking of the Ross Ice Shelf, which is about the same size as France.

There are no land predators on Antarctica: it's too cold and there is no food chain. However, breeding animals -- all marine life -- on Antarctica's beaches can beco…me prey to each other during breeding season, when all are most vulnerable -- because they are on land.
Antarctica is a continent, so there is land under the ice. Most of this land hasn't been exposed in thousands of years (or millions further inland), so there is essentially no…thing but rock beneath it. There are even mountain ranges and volcanoes throughout the continent, covered under thick ice.
Approximately 98% of Antarctica's surface is covered in ice.
