Joseph Anning is a paleontologist from Lyme Regis, a town and fossil site in the United Kingdom.

Joseph Anning was the brother of Mary Anning and found Ichthyosaurus in 1811 with Mary and their dog. He was born in 1796 andassd was a paleontologist and geologist as well as Mary. They had ten brothers and sisters but none of them survived, except Mary. His mother was a paleontologist and ran the fossil business but we don't know if she did any fossil collecting.
