The Zoologist was a monthly natural history magazine established in 1843 by Edward Newman and published in London. Newman acted as editor-in-chief until his death in 1876, when he was succeeded by James Edmund Harting (1876–1896) and William Lucas Distant (1897–1916).

Originating from an enlargement of The Entomologist, The Zoologist contained long articles, short notes, comments on current events, and book reviews covering the entire Animal Kingdom throughout the world, until The Entomologist was separated again in 1864. Initially, half of the space was devoted to birds, rising to two-thirds later.

Due to a shortage of subscribers it was amalgamated with British Birds in 1916.
