Tabaqui was a male jackal that lived in the jungle.

He fed on scraps from either Shere Khan or the wolves of the Seeonee Pack. He was unpopular with the wolves, due to his mock cordiality, and habit of sucking up to Shere Khan. He visited Mowgli's adoptive parents, Mother and Father Wolf shortly before Mowgli's arrival, and they were clearly annoyed by his presence, since he announced that Shere Khan the tiger was hunting in their territory. Tabaqui was later killed by one of Mowgli's 'siblings', Grey Brother, who crushes his back.

Media portrayalsEdit

Tabaqui has been featured in a few film/animated Jungle Book adaptations, but usually portrayed as a hyena. Coincidentally because hyenas are also scavengers.

  • In Chuck Jones' made for-TV cartoon Mowgli's Brothers, Tabaqui is accurately portrayed as the sniveling Jackal who serves Shere Khan. Even so, people who see the program, and know Chuck Jones, would think of Wile E. Coyote of Looney Tunes fame, because of how Tabaqui looks identical to him in the cartoon. He was voiced by Roddy McDowall.

Trivias Edit

  • Toto/Cassius the Black Leopard from Kimba the White Lion character to resemble by Tabaqui the Spotted Hyena rip-off at Africa and India, expect for Aryll's New World from Astro Boy Productions, renamed of Tabaqui... already? What kind the animal like call the panther?
