* The common pheasant, originally native to southwestern Asia, began being introduced to other parts of the Northern Hemisphere in Roman times. Less destructive than many of the above examples, it's blended into ecosystems of Europe and North America so seamlessly that it's now the state bird of South Dakota, despite being unheard-of on the continent before 1881. Ironically, captive-bred lines of pheasants released for hunting have mostly replaced the original wild pheasants in their native habitats, making this a case of an introduced species supplanting ''itself''.

** Even more egregiously, Baloo is, by all appearances, a grizzly bear. In India. Sloth bears, the literary character's species, simply don't have the good looks or badassery to lead a gritty reboot (although Bagheera and [[WordofGod Word of God]] still identify Baloo as a sloth bear, regardless of how [[http://palaeofail-explained.tumblr.com/post/142517907556/so-to-answer-your-wondering-at-the-new-jungle un-sloth bear-like he is]] in the movie). The Himalayan subspecies of brown bear is found in India, but only in the northwestern Kashmir region, still a long, long way from Madhya Pradesh.

** Among the Bandar-log, the gibbons are presumed to be a hoolock gibbon; the western and eastern hoolock gibbons are the only gibbon species native to India. However, they are only found in the northeastern part of India, and do not share a range with the lion-tailed macaque, which is native to the ''southwestern'' part of India. Same goes for most of the other monkeys - the other macaque species represented appears to be a pig-tailed macaque, likely the northern pig-tailed macaque. There are also golden langurs and Nilgiri langurs. However, the northern pig-tailed macaque and golden langur are also found only in the northeastern states of India, and wouldn't have hung out with the lion-tailed macaques. The Nilgiri langur, like the lion-tailed macaque, is endemic to southwestern India. ''None of these species are found in the Seoni area''. Only the gray langurs fit biogeographically - they're probably meant to be southern plains gray langur, which is the species native to central India. It's really odd that they chose a number of more exotic-looking monkey species that while Indian, don't occur in this area at all, while omitting the rhesus macaque, which ''is'' found in central India.

** India covers a wide range of climates, ecosystems, and biogeographic regions. Consequently, you can throw in a whole bunch of animals that are all found in India, yet don't actually meet each other in the wild. The Jungle Book is set in Seeonee (more typically spelt Seoni) in the state of Madhya Pradesh, central India. A number of Indian wildlife depicted in the movie aren't native to this area itself, such as Indian rhino and pygmy hog (both more typical of the grasslands of the northern and northeastern states), as well as a great deal of the various primate species that make up the Bandar-log.

** The film is listed under aversions for how it turns King Louie, originally an orangutan, into a ''Gigantopithecus'', for the explicit reason that orangutans don't live in India... which is just this trope [[VoodooShark on a temporal level instead of a geographical one]]. ''Gigantopithecus'' lived in India, but has been extinct for 100,000 years or more. Our human protagonist would be far more likely to encounter an orangutan. That being said, a 12-foot-tall King Louie makes for an awesomely-staged scene, so RuleOfCool applies.
** It would have made more sense if Louie was still an orangutan, but was in India because he was an escapee from captivity.
** Even more egregiously, Baloo is, by all appearances, a grizzly bear. In India. Sloth bears, the literary character's species, simply don't have the good looks or badassery to lead a gritty reboot.
** The Himalayan subspecies of brown bear is found in India, but only in the northwestern Kashmir region, still a long, long way from Madhya Pradesh.
** During the credits, silhouettes of monkeys with prehensile tails and hummingbirds are shown.
