Charles-Nicolas-Sigisbert Sonnini de Manoncourt (1 February 1751 – 9 May 1812 in Paris) was a French naturalist. Between 1799 and 1808 he wrote 127 volumes of the Histoire naturelle. Noteworthy among these, especially for herpetologists, is Histoire naturelle des Reptiles, avec figures desinées d'après nature, in four volumes, which he wrote with Pierre André Latreille. This work includes descriptions and illustrations of many North American reptiles.
