Appearances Mario Kart DS

The Wildlife is Donkey Kong's second special kart in Mario Kart DS. It resembles a converted green safari Jeep, complete with an antenna that has a red flag. The emblem is located on the hood and both sides of the flag. It most closely resembles the 1940s vehicle, the Jeep CJ-3A. It has average weight and acceleration, low handling and items, and great speed and drift. Its acceleration is shared with the Standard RB, ROB-LGS, Brute, and Standard WR, and its weight is tied with the Cucumber, 4-Wheel Cradle, Power Flower, and Standard DS. It is the lightest kart within the heavyweight class.

To let any character use it, gold trophies must be obtained in every cup in Mirror Mode. When the player can choose from 7 karts, Luigi and Peach can use this kart.
