Emanuel Bunzel, born 1828, was an Austrian paleontologist.

In 1871, he described a skull fragment found in an Austrian coal mine years before by colleagues Ferdinand Stoliczka and Eduard Suess as the type specimen for the dinosaur genus Struthiosaurus, the first discovered in the region. Another dinosaur he described initially as a species of Iguanodon (I. suessii) has since been reassigned to the genus Mochlodon.
