Jimmy Z is a member of the Wild Kratts crew. He is the main pilot of the Tortuga HQ and operates the ship's teleporter, oftentimes delivering Creature Power Discs and various other equipment to the Kratt brothers.


Jimmy Z has a laid-back, "slacker" personality, and, more often than not, can be seen chilling out in the Tortuga's cockpit sleeping, consuming large quantities of food, or playing and progamming video games. Jimmy describes himself as not being a "creature-adventuring type" and is usually content to stay in the Tortuga most of the time while the others are out and about. While he is not as knowledgeable about animals as the rest of the crew, he does try to help out as best as he can; his character is quite similar to that of Shaggy Rogers from the Scooby-Doo franchise, in that he is oftentimes shown to be quite nervous and is easily frightened. He cannot live without his game controller, which he uses to teleport items and Creature Power Discs to the Kratts when they are on their adventures.

Physical Appearance

Jimmy is a young man of average height, with reddish-orange hair and light blue eyes. He usually wears a blue-green baseball cap worn backwards, a grey t-shirt with a video game character on it, a white, long-sleeved shirt worn underneath, red plaid shorts, and white tennis shoes with a slight lean build. He has notable facial hair on his chin - known as a "goatee" - along with some freckles. In "Capture the Fishmobile," he wore a brown/orange wetsuit that was similar to both Chris and Martin's before the addition of the Wild Kratts insignia.


Although he is not a "creature adventuring type" guy, and his knowledge in science and technology is limited, without Jimmy, the Wild Kratts crew would not get very far. By teleporting necessary equipment, and acting as an assistant and lab rat, Jimmy helps guarantee that the Kratt brothers' adventures will go smoothly, that Aviva and Koki can build their inventions, that creatures will be rescued, and that the villains will be stopped. He also has exceptional piloting skills, seeing as he is the main pilot of the Tortuga.
