Chef Gourmand is the third recurring villain. He is a traveling chef who uses animals to make various original and unusual dishes. He uses his skills in the wild, an array of kitchen utensils, and his abnormally large nose to seek out and capture animals. Although the type of animal varies, he prefers ones that he deems "rare" or "endangered." Gourmand is clever, cunning, and has a strong yet dark sense of humor; he enjoys getting the Wild Kratts crew to suffer through the situations he brings them into.
