We all have read "The Jungle Book" by Rudyard Kipling, and we all fell in love with a cute little boy who lives in a jungle with tigers, bears, and wolves. The Disney movie was just adorable! To most of us, this is still just a story, but sometimes stories come true.
A Part of the Pack
Most of us had cats and dogs as pets when we were little, but this girl had Africa's entire wildlife to play with. Tippi, the girl totally broke the internet, was not raised by wild animals, but she was surrounded by them all her life.
Every Animal Is My Friend
She played with elephants, mongooses, and snakes. Her parents fell in love with Africa and started to explore everything that this great continent had to offer.
A Carefree Childhood
They included her in the adventures, and she soon became known as Mowgli's little sister. Tippi was raised to love nature and everything around her.
An Elephant Never Forgets
Most kids her age want to ride a pony, but she used to ride elephants.
She learned how to climb trees by playing with monkeys.
"Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty, Little Ball of Fur"
Even wild cats acted like kitties around her.
Come with Me
Everywhere she went, animals followed her.
One with Nature
Even birds seem to have loved her presence.
It's Sleeping Time
Instead of cuddling with her favorite stuffed toy, she used to nap with cougars.
Let Me Give You a Kiss
Most kids are afraid of snakes and lizards, but Tippi loved them.
She Had Human Friends as Well
Even local African tribes took her in like she was one of their own.
All Grown Up
Tippi is now 26 years old but she still visits her childhood friends.
