Mary Anning (n. 21 mai 1799; d. 9 martie 1847) a fost un colecționar de fosile, comerciant de fosile și paleontolog britanică. Ea a devenit cunoscută în lume pentru descoperirea unor fosile importante, în straturile de fosile marine din epoca Jurasicului din Lyme Regis. Munca sa a contribuit la schimbările fundamentale în gândirea științifică despre viața preistorică și istoria Terrei, care au avut loc la începutul secolului 19.
