Classic Fantasy Literary Fiction pastiche kipling animals

A boy abandoned in the jungle. A pack of wolves who live by the jungle's Law. A fierce tiger, a cunning panther, and a deadly python. You know these characters... or do you? This re-envisioning of Kipling's Mowgli stories begins with a simple question: What if Mowgli hadn't been raised by the wolves?

I waited for about 20 minutes for this tiger to pace towards me and then crouched to line up this plant with his line of sight. The photo makes you feel like you’re being hunted.
