A Paleontologist is a scientist who studies the remains of ancient life as recorded in the fossil record. If you are in Junior or Senior High School you should study and do well in:
- pure sciences like physics and chemistry
- languages (French, German or Latin)
For lots more information on how to become a Paleontologist, go to the Tyrrell Museum website.
