All lenses that work with Pentax work with your camera. That means all current Pentax-branded lenses, pretty much all Pentax-branded lenses made any time in the last 30 years (DA, D-FA, FA, FA-J, F, A, M), and pretty much all lenses made in that time by Sigma, Tamron, Tokina, or other major third-party lenses manufacturers that are made to work with Pentax.

For wildlife, you probably want something 300mm or longer. The DA 55-300 would be one possibility, or some older Pentax zooms that go to 400, or some Sigma zooms that go even longer.
