Kaa's Hunting by kenket Kaa's Hunting by kenket
"The moon sets," Kaa said. "Is there yet light enough to see?"
From the walls came a moan like the wind in the tree-tops— "We see, O Kaa."
"Good. Begins now the dance—the Dance of the Hunger of Kaa. Sit still and watch."

Kaa and the Bandar-log (c) Rudyard Kipling

I wish that Kaa is a female breed, IMO.

Someone who actually knows Kaa wasn't a villain! Thank you! Great piece btw, really captures that scene from the book.

I always did prefer the version of Kaa that was true to the books. This Disney Villain crap is annoying

I always imagined him to be bigger, though, since he says he's hundreds if not thousands of years old and snakes never stop growing

They made him way too big in that one. I wasn't sure if it was a python or a titanoboa.

The size is the only good thing about that. WHY IS HE (or she, I guess) A VILLAIN AGAIN!? :(

YEP.
The first jungle book movie Kaa looks like some kind of Mutant Frog thing.

Disney is making *another* "Jungle Book" movie that won't be based on the actual stories by Kipling.  And Kaa is going to be a villain again.

If someone somewhere would make a movie or TV show that was actually true to the actual stories I believe it would be a huge hit.  Most people know of "The Jungle Book" only from Disney.  What a shame!

Disney told his crew to throw Kipling's book away when making the '67 movie and that's what everyone has done every since.  I think he had a problem with snakes as good guys.

But anyway, this is an **excellent** depiction of the events in "Kaa's Hunting."  The book is full of great scenes that could be pictured like this.
