Donita Donata is a recurring villain in Wild Kratts. She is a fashion designer who uses animals to make clothes and accessories.



Concept art of Donita

Donita is a woman of noticeably high stature (she's the tallest of the villains after Dabio) with maroon hair, golden eyes, and tan skin. Her usual attire consists of a reddish-pink shirt adorned with dots, with the sleeves rolled up to the elbows, along with long, blue-green earrings and umber brown pants which are worn up to the waist. She is typically seen in high-heels, sporting a lot of makeup.


Donita gets easily frustrated and angry. Although she is able to do her own work, she often avoids doing so because she thinks it will make her look "unfashionable". She is bossy, and she tries to make herself look superior when facing others. She is also shown to be a bit of a flirt, as seen in her debut in "Flight of the Draco," with her close interactions with Martin, referring to him as "Martino." While Donita admires animals for their beauty and other fashionable assets, she is quite apathetic towards their plight, only considering them to be a means to an end. Like Zach, she has an enormous ego, which makes her easy to dupe.

Donita incorporates animals into whatever she is making by placing them in suspended animation, in which the animals cannot move, but are still fully conscious. She then either shows them off at fashion shows or sells them as pieces of jewelry or other accessories.

Donita also has a henchman named Dabio. Although always ready to serve her every need, Dabio's childish attitude and low intelligence keep her from accomplishing her plans quickly, if at all.

Typically, Donita travels the world in her pink, private jet. The interior is littered with dress forms, sewing machines, posters, drapes, boxes filled with clothing and fabrics, and all of her comforts. The jet also has a suction vacuum, which she uses to suck up her animal targets. She also travels in a pink yacht, which has an outdoor pool, and houses a pink speed boat. She even owns a fancy limousine. She is shown to be capable of hacking into the Wild Kratts' computers, meaning that she must be good with technology ("Walk on the Wetside").
