Fun Facts:

  • Did you know there are over 500 species of shark? 143 of these are under threat, ranging from vulnerable to critically endangered.
  • Most sharks are cold-blooded
  • Sharks are apex predators - Many have several rows of teeth and can lose and replace thousands of teeth in their lifetimes. As predators, sharks play a vital role in the health of marine ecosystems - by eating fish they help create balance in the food chain.
  • We even get sharks around the UK! The basking shark is Britain’s largest fish (and the second largest in the world). It can grow up to 11 metres long and weigh up to 7 tonnes - about the size and weight of a double-decker bus.
  • Sharks have been around for about 400 million years - long before dinosaurs!
