Jungle Book Bear

Medvěd z Knihy džunglí

We all know him, we all love him: Baloo – Mowgli’s companion from the Jungle Book. The role models for Baloo are the Sloth Bears of India – surprisingly little is known about this species. Sloth Bears have never been portrayed in a natural history programme before. This film shows behaviour that was even not known to scientists so far – e.g. the mouth feeding of cubs by their mothers.
