Thomas Pennant (1726-1798) the Welsh naturalist, traveller, writer and antiquarian. He wrote acclaimed books including 'British Zoology', the 'History of Quadrupeds., 'Arctic Zoology' and 'Indian Zoology', although he never travelled further afield than continental Europe. His first scientific papers focused on his own experiences, geological subjects and palaeontology. One of these so impressed Carl Linnaeus, that in 1757, he put Pennant's name forward and he was duly elected a member of Royal Swedish Society of Sciences.
