For wildlife you're going to need a longer than average lens, 200-300.

Whilst I don't disagree with Malcolm that the lens is more important than the camera, with today's reliance on electronics, I'd buy new with warranty.

I like Nikon, but it's personal preference.

The 18-55 will be useless for wildlife, spend the money from that on a nice tripod :)

 

Essentially, any decent camera is going to get good shots nowadays, for wildlife photography you just need the focal length to get close without disturbing them.

 

The more megapixels your camera has, the bigger you can print the image but to be fair, who prints big images?

 

Asking a photographer what equipment he uses to take amazing photo's is like asking an artist which brushes he uses, or an author which word processing software. Essentially, they're all tools, it's how you use them so for a starter I'd also recommend a cover to cover read of Understanding Exposure, a great book to learn what the 'M' setting is and why to use it on a modern camera and them some.
