Appears in Mario Kart DS

The Wildlife is Donkey Kong's unlockable signature kart in Mario Kart DS. It resembles a converted green safari Jeep (hence the German name), especially the Jeep CJ-3A, complete with an antenna that has a red flag. The emblem is located on the hood and both sides of the flag. It has moderate acceleration and weight, low handling and items, and great speed and drift. Its acceleration is shared with the Standard WR, and its weight is tied with the Brute.

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