Jake McGowan-Lowe is 11 years old and lives in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. He began collecting bones on walks with his father when he was six and started blogging about his finds in 2007 when he was seven.

Over the years he has been collecting, Jake's knowledge has grown and he is quickly becoming the youngest expert in his field.

He has appeared on BBC TV and regularly features in the local and international press. As a blogger Jake has a large international online following with visitors from 169 countries.
