Winifred is a female Indian Elephant. She is a member of Colonel Hathi's jungle patrol, and appears to be one of only female members, though this may be because she is married to Hathi. Unlike many mothers seen in Disney films, Winifred is snarky and sarcastic, never hesitating to remind Hathi of his faults. However, she is shown to be caring to others, caring enough for the lost Mowgli's welfare that she is willing to convince her husband to initiate a search party for the man-cub. Together, she and her husband have one son, Hathi, Jr., who comes to be friends with Mowgli.
She also appears in the prequel TV-series Jungle Cubs as a calf.
