The Wildlife is Donkey Kong's second special kart in Mario Kart DS. It is a converted green safari Jeep, complete with a flagged antennae showing the character's decal like over the hood of the vehicle. It most closely resembles the 1940s vehicle, the Jeep CJ-3A. It has average weight, acceleration, poor handling, and items, and great speed and drift. Its acceleration is shared with the ROB-BLS, Standard RB, ROB-LGS, Brute, Standard WR, and Dragonfly, and its weight is tied with the Cucumber, 4-Wheel Cradle, Power Flower, Standard DS, Standard MR and Standard LG.

When characters get to choose from 7 karts by getting all gold trophies in all Nitro or Retro Courses in 150cc, Luigi and Peach can use this kart. This becomes available for everyone else when gold trophies are obtained in every cup in Mirror Mode.
