Mrs. Kipling, originally known as Mr. Kipling, is the family pet, a 7-foot Asian Water Monitor Lizard in JESSIE. The lizard belongs to Ravi and is the only link to his beloved homeland, India.

Mrs. Kipling is portrayed by the lizard actor, Frank.



Mrs. Kipling, a seven-foot water monitor lizard, was found by Ravi in a swamp in India when she was just an egg. Ravi did what any normal kid would do. He sat on the egg, hatched the egg, and befriended Mrs. Kipling for life.

In The Talented Mr. Kipling, she used her tail to swat away the hawk that tried to attack Mrs. Chesterfield's chihuahua.

During the episode Zuri's New Old Friend, Mrs. Kipling was in love with a plastic dinosaur after going to the park with Jessie, Emma, Zuri, Luke and her helpful owner Ravi.

In Glue Dunnit: A Sticky Situation, she becomes Ravi's assistant detective. While Ravi dresses up as a cop from CSI, Kipling dresses up as Sherlock Holmes.
