Johann Andreas Wagner (21 March 1797 – 17 December 1861) was a German palaeontologist, zoologist and archaeologist who wrote several important works on palaeontology.


Wagner was a professor at the University of Munich, and curator of the Zoologische Staatssammlung (State Zoology Collection).
He was the author of Die Geographische Verbreitung der Säugethiere Dargestellt (1844–46).
Wagner was a Christian creationist.Rupke, Nicolaas A. (2005). Neither Creation nor Evolution: The Third Way in Mid-Nineteenth-Century Thinking about the Origin of Species. Annals of the History and Philosophy of Biology 10: 160.


In his travels to the fossil beds of Pikermi, Wagner discovered and described fossil remains of mastodon, Dinotherium, Hipparion, two species of giraffe, antelope and others.Upper Miocene Formations of Greece at Pikermi on Geology.com Neue Beiträge zur Kenntniss der fossilen Säugthier-Überreste von Pikermi on Google books, by Wagner, Munich, 1857 His collaboration with Johannes Roth on these fossils became a major textbook in palaeontology, known as "Roth & Wagner", in which the "bones were much broken, and no complete skeleton was found with all the parts united".
