JUNGLEBOOK
In the original Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, the snake Kaa is actually helping Mowgli against his adversaries. In Kaa’s Hunting, Bagheera and Baloo enlist Kaa’s help to rescue Mowgli when the man-cub is captured by the Bandar-log (monkeys) and taken to an abandoned human city. In The Second Jungle Book, Kaa appears in the first half of the story The King’s Ankus. After he and Mowgli spend some time relaxing, bathing and wrestling, Kaa persuades Mowgli to visit a treasure chamber guarded by an old cobra beneath an ancient city. The cobra tries to kill Mowgli but its poison has dried up. Mowgli takes a jeweled item away as a souvenir, not realizing the trouble it will cause them, and Kaa departs. In Red Dog, Mowgli asks Kaa for help when his wolf pack is threatened by rampaging dholes (the red dogs of the title).
