The book of the jungle

avengers: age of ultron

The Jungle Book is actually a collection of short stories. However, the first eight are all part of the same story that begins when a young couple loses their baby in the forests of India while trying to escape the attack of Shere Khan (a huge and ferocious Bengal tiger and the main villain of the book). The baby appears in the den of a pack of wolves who save him from Shere Khan’s clutches. Raksha (the adoptive wolf mother) calls him «Mowgli» – ‘the frog’, since he has no fur.

Like any other wolf cub, he is taught the law of the jungle (a set of six articles where the main values that a wolf should have) by Baloo. Mowgli thus lives different stories that make him understand the true value of laws (especially when he faces the Bandar-Log -the lawless monkey people-), of friendship and, above all, of teamwork.

The eighth story concludes the story of Mowgli, and at the same time, the uniqueness of the stories. From here on, they are all different stories, with different characters, and not even all of them take place in the Seeonee jungle. Kotick, the white seal, or Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, the mongoose, appear.

The Jungle Book (original title in English: The Jungle Book) is an American animated film released in 1967, produced by Walt Disney Productions. This film is based on the Mowgli stories, written by Rudyard Kipling.

On the outskirts of the jungle, which is a desert, Mowgli meets some vultures, with whom he befriends, and they reconcile him, Shere Khan arrives and tries to kill Mowgli, but Baloo prevents him by holding him by the tail. The buzzards save Mowgli, but Shere Khan leaves Baloo seriously wounded. A thunderstorm breaks out, one of the lightning strikes a tree causing it to catch fire, and the vultures tell Mowgli that Shere Khan is afraid of fire, so they distract Shere Khan while Mowgli grabs a burning branch, while Shere Khan can be seen hitting Baloo leaving him already on the ground while Mowgli holds him by the tail, causing burns and causing Shere Khan to flee in terror. Mowgli goes to Baloo and Bagheera arrives. Everyone thinks Baloo is dead, but in reality he was only pretending.

While the universal tale of friendship, community, and longing to belong persists unchanged, we cannot say the same about the condition of the animals in Kipling’s tale. Even a century ago, the author expressed concern about man’s impact on nature, and many of the animals described are now endangered. Here’s what you need to know about the real-life versions of the gang in The Jungle Book:

Black panthers, like Bagheera, are not a distinct species, but color variants of the leopards of Asia and Africa, and the jaguars of South America. Kipling acknowledges this when he describes Bagheera as ?black as ink, but with the markings of the panther, which, in a certain light, appear as a moiré pattern?

Rabinowitz and other experts keep a close watch on leopard populations to determine whether the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) needs to change the conservation status of this cat from «near threatened» to «vulnerable».
