Baby Mowgli

<< Pictures Of Mowgli | Mowgli | Mowgli's Bed >>

In the Disney animated movie from 1967 we see Mowgli as a small baby in a basket, found by Bagheera who brings the basket including Mowgli to the Wolf family.


In the original Jungle Book (chapter Mowgli's Brothers) however, we read how Mowgli was a bit older and already stood...

“Man!” he snapped. “A man’s cub. Look!”
Directly in front of him, holding on by a low branch, stood a naked brown baby who could just walk--as soft and as dimpled a little atom as ever came to a wolf’s cave at night. He looked up into Father Wolf’s face, and laughed.

Other quote from the same chapter...

"He came naked, by night, alone and very hungry; yet he was not afraid! Look, he has pushed one of my babes to one side already. And that lame butcher would have killed him and would have run off to the Waingunga while the villagers here hunted through all the lairs in revenge! Keep him? Assuredly I will keep him. Lie still, Little frog. O thou Mowgli - for Mowgli the frog I will call thee - the time will come when thou wilt hunt Shere Khan as he has hunted thee."
