Bagheera is a black panther that appears in The Jungle Book. In the film, Bagheera had tried to get mowgli to the "Man Village" because of Shere Khan wanting Mowgli dead. Through out the film, Bagheera was shown to get mad at some other characters Mowgli incountered (such as Baloo, Colonel Hathi etc.). Bagheera is portrayed as a clever, serious and responsible character, quite similar to the Bagheera in the novel, except that in the novel, Bagheera spoiled Mowgli much more. During the movie, Bagheera often argues with Baloo, for he knows that as long as Shere Khan is in the jungle, the jungle is not safe for Mowgli despite all of Baloo's attempts to protect him.
