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 character's decal is located on either side of the flag and on the hood. 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.

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.
