Shark Riddles

Our series of animal riddles has proven to be very popular, so we’re continuing with that theme today with seven where ‘shark’ is the answer.

These riddles for kids therefore fit in well with many of our other themes, such as nature, movies, beach and scary.

The first five of these are rhyming ones, there’s a one liner and it’s rounded off by a What Am I? riddle.

To use the last idea, read the first line of it to your children and get them to take a guess at what they think the answer is.

The reference to teeth might make them say something like a comb, mouth or lion. If that’s the case and they don’t guess that the answer’s shark, read them the second clue and ask them to guess again.

Keep doing this until they either guess that shark is the correct answer or they run out of clues.

Some people are scared of this creature
Because it can have a big bite
So be careful out in the ocean
One of its kind is a Great White


When someone doesn’t swim in the ocean
Then this animal might be the cause
Because they’re afraid they’ll be bitten
By this large fish who’s the star of Jaws


I have a very big bite
But I do not ever bark
I swim out in the ocean
I have a fin – I’m a _ _ _ _ _


Swimming around the ocean
While prey it does seek
The Discovery Channel
Gives it its own week

Then you will probably pause
Because most people are so scared
Of this creature that’s in Jaws

What Am I?

I have a lot of teeth but I’m not a cog
I scare a lot of people but I’m not a spider

I sometimes have a hammerhead but I don’t hit nails
