    In the 1894 book The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, Baloo was a bear that adopted the orphaned Mowgli and taught him the ways of the jungle. Together with Bagheera the panther, Baloo made sure that Mowgli grew up and was able to survive the jungle. At the end of the story, Mowgli, encouraged by Baloo, goes back to the human world.
