  • Originally, the Sea Turtle was members-only, however it became available for all Jammers on November 8, 2012.
  • The Sea Turtle is the third non-member animal that can be used in the oceans, the first two being Penguins and Seals.
  • The Sea Turtle is the only non-member animal in Jamaa that is unable to go on land.
  • There is a pet counterpart to the Sea Turtle.
  • They are one of two reptiles in Jamaa, with the second being the Crocodiles.
  • The pet turtle can go on land, while the actual animal can't.
  • In real life, sea turtles can go on land, though only to lay eggs.
  • If a sea turtle wears Pufferfish Spikes, the spikes will almost completely cover its shell.
  • In real life, it is impossible for a turtle to take off its shell due to its shell being fused with its spine. Yet in the game, a sea turtle will take off its shell when it dances, poses, or plays.
  • In 2012, there was a glitch where former members could play as a member animal if they bought a Sea Turtle.
