After a threat from the tiger Shere Khan forces him to flee the jungle, a man-cub named Mowgli embarks on a journey of self discovery with the help of panther Bagheera and free-spirited bear Baloo.
Shere Khan is often accompanied by a flock of vultures. While a group of vultures appeared in The Jungle Book (1967), they were enemies of Shere Khan. Here, they are scavengers following him to eat whatever prey he catches.
Many strange tales are told of this jungle, but none so strange as the tale of the cub we call Mowgli.
Jerboas are native to northern Africa and Asia east to northern China and Manchuria.
The Disney castle logo shrinks into jungle foliage as the camera pulls back but the film title moves off-screen left as the camera adds pan right motion to its pullback, panning first to a Bambi scene and then to a jungle scene.
