Kaa begins to feel sorry for the young creature and attempts to cheer him up before he catches him, Kaa tries animal imitations which seem to work but the silly serpent gets ahead of himself and gets stuck within a tree only to be rescued by the mongoose who introduces himself to Kaa before nodding off in the snakes coils when Kaa tried one last attempt to hypnotize him but quickly befriends Mungo.

Later, as the duo make their way back to the lair, Mungo reveals to Kaa that his mother said it was time Mungo left the nest and fend for himself but Mungo doubts he ready to face the dangers of the jungle alone. Kaa agrees with his new friend and decides to introduce him to the others back at the lair.

Shere Khan invites Mungo to join him for lunch off screen, Louie confronts Kaa about bringing Shere Khan something to eat but left him empty handed, Kaa soon realizes he was originally sent out by Shere Khan for food. But Mungo was more then cable of fending himself from the tiger cub attacking his nose before climbing out of reach with in the lair. Kaa quickly slithers in confronting Khan about attacking Mungo, Shere Khan storms off into the jungle to find his own lunch.

With Shere Khan gone, Kaa informs Mungo it's safe for him to come down only for Bagheera to rush to Kaa's aid believing the mongoose was a threat. Kaa assured Bagheera that Mungo is his friend but Bagheera disagrees with the young python because mongooses eat snakes and it's the law of the jungle.
