Of all the creatures known to us, none is more dangerous and deadly than the basilisk - otherwise known as "the king of snakes". This creature is born from a chicken egg hatched by a crow. The venom of the basilisk is deadly.
Anyone bitten by this giant snake suffers instant death, but phoenix tears are an effective antidote to this attack. However, the basilisk possesses another deadly quality: if direct eye contact is made with this creature, every living creature dies instantly. If, however, the eyes are only seen as a reflection, e.g. in a mirror, water or the like, those affected are only petrified and can be freed from this by means of an antidote. However, the baslisk has a deadly enemy: the crowing of the cock.
