The Best of the Best
Mary Anning is an English paleontologist who is famous for her deep love of fossil hunting.
Although she was well-known for her discoveries, Mary wasn’t taken seriously as a scientist in her lifetime because of her gender and poor background. Some of the male scientists she worked with claimed her findings as their own! But today, Mary is recognised as a pioneer in the field of paleontology (the study of fossils) and is celebrated as the greatest fossil hunter of all time!
