The Basilisk begins it's life cycle as an egg impossibly laid by a rooster, which is then incubated by a snake. The resulting creature is so incredibly venomous that even it's gaze can poison and kill. As it walks it's breath dries up the grass and vegetation around it, leaving trails of death in it's wake.
Modern folklorists have theorized that stories of the Basilisk may have sprung from accounts of the Indian spitting cobra.
