Arthur John Loveridge (1891 – 1980) was a British biologist and herpetologist who published much about the animals of East Africa, particularly those from Tanganyika. In 1914 he became the curator of the Nairobi Museum. During World War I, he joined the East African Mounted Rifles, later returning to the museum to build up the collections. He then became an assistant game warden in Tanganyika. Apart from his many scientific publications, Arthur Loveridge wrote popular books about his collecting safaris in Africa.
