  • Toby is based on a African helmeted turtle (Pelomedusa subrufa).
  • Since he is incorrectly called a "tortoise", Toby is actually a turtle. This is to avoid confusion between the sea turtles and the land tortoise.
  • Toby was inspired by the drawing of a turtle designed by Vrombaut as a child.
  • His first appearance was actually Episode 2, despite being shown in the opening song.
  • He share traits with Javier in "Wild Kratts". Both, he and Toby are afraid of something (Toby is afraid of thunderstorms and Javier is afraid of Gila monsters).
