These fact cards are the perfect gift for any shark lover, young or old!
Ria from Button & Squirt wanted to create this set of cards to bring some much needed love to the sharks that swim in our oceans. They are a very misunderstood group of animals that get some very bad press (Jaws I'm looking at you). Sharks are truly amazing creatures that we need to keep our oceans healthy, so its about time we all learnt a bit more about them and realised how much love they really deserve.
Each Card features one of Button And Squirt's original shark drawings, along with their common name and scientific name, where they live, what they eat, their conservation status and 3 fun facts and, the background colour of each card represents where in the world they live.
Use the cards to learn more about some of the amazing animals that we share the earth with. Each card is also colour coordinated in a range of colours to show which area of the earth they are found in. On the back of each card are amazing facts about the animals.
They also make a fantastic home education resource providing a fun educational activity that will allow them to learn through play about amazing unusual animals from around the world.
There are lots of different ways to play and they really do appeal to all ages.
Some ways we play:
- Match up toys to the cards
- Play snap with the coloured backgrounds
- Identify the sharks
- Remember facts to win the cards
- Use them as resources at drawing time or inspiration for writing stories.
We love hearing how you play with yours too.

My son and I love the Amazing Animal Fact cards, so when he got into sharks in a big way I had to get these ones too. I combined them with some little shark models for a fun matching game, and we have a selection out on the table most of the time so we can read shark facts together at meal times. A total hit with my 3y11m old!
