Have you ever wanted to be a palaeontologist? Do you love looking for fossils or learning about prehistoric creatures? So did John Long. Find out what it took to turn a childhood passion into a lifelong career.
When John Long was seven years old, he found his first fossil on a beach in Melbourne. From collecting fossils with his cousin Tim Flannery, John has become a world authority on the ancient Devonian fish and the ancestors of land-dwelling vertebrates. John's remarkable career has taken him to the frozen wastes of Antarctica, to the Kimberly ranges of Western Australia and the tropical forests of Thailand. He's worked with the police to help stamp out fossil trafficking and named hundreds of new fossil species.
