Why does Rikki Tikki destroy Nagina's eggs?
1 Answer | Add Yours
Rikki Tikki Tavi destroys Nagina's eggs because they are going to hatch soon, and then he will have an entire brood of deadly cobras to deal with. He needs to destroy the eggs before any of the snakes hatch so that once he gets rid of the adult snakes, no new ones will show up right away.
