Death: Shot by Teddy's father
Appears in: Rikki-Tikki-Tavi

Nag was the cobra killed by Teddy's father.


Nag was the dangerous, murderous cobra, Nag (the word is Hindi for "snake") who lived in the garden with his even more dangerous mate Nagaina. They used to have the run of the garden until Teddy's family moved in. At Nagaina's urging, Nag planned to kill the human family to get the house empty again so they could have free run of its garden. She also reminded him that their eggs would hatch soon (as they might the next day) and that their children would need room and quiet. Nag went to the bathroom to wait to kill the "big man", and went to sleep while waiting. Rikki-Tikki-Tavi grabbed Nag by the head above the hood. Nag thrashed about furiously, and the noise woke the man, who fired both barrels of a shotgun into Nag, blowing him in two pieces and almost hitting Rikki. Nag was thrown on the rubbish heap, where Nagaina mourned for him and vowed vengeance.
