Separate attributes into unique shapefiles

I have a shapefile with polygons of sampled wetlands. I want to separate the shapefile into a series of shapefiles of each sampled wetland. I know I can select each individual feature within the attribute table and use Export Data>Selected features to create each shapefile, but I was hoping there was a tool of some form that would do it (There are 36 features in the original shapefile, so not a ton but enough that I don't want to have to do each individually).
Thanks for your help!
