Zdansky, Otto

Otto A. Zdansky (1894 - 1988) was an Austrian paleontologist.

He is best known for his work in China, where he, as an assistant to Johan Gunnar Andersson, discovered a fossil tooth of the Peking Man in 1921 at the Dragon Bone Hill, although he did not disclose it until 1926 when he published it in Nature after an analysis by Davidson Black.

He is also famous for his excavations of mammal fossils in Baode County area (Pao Te Hsien), Shanxi Province.
