Rate this Mythological creature: The Basilisk?



A legendary reptile reputed to be king of serpents and said to have the power to cause death with a single glance. According to the Naturalis Historia of Pliny the Elder, the basilisk of Cyrene is a small snake, "being not more than twelve fingers in length," that is so venomous, it leaves a wide trail of deadly venom in its wake, and its gaze is likewise lethal; its weakness is in the odor of the weasel, which, according to Pliny, was thrown into the basilisk's hole, recognizable because all the surrounding shrubs and grass had been scorched by its presence.

  • Said to have the crest of a rooster and was so toxic even the stone it crawled on would rot and turn to gravel. (I actually did not know about the weasel part though, interesting though not suprising. Their is a mythological creature that is basicly a giant mongoose that covers itself in mud and then throws itself down a dragons mouth killing it from the inside because, people where/are weird like that.)
