The only problem I have with this quiz is the description for the Baskilisk. The only time a Baskilisk is small is when its a baby! (Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone)

It's "basilisk," and traditionally, a basilisk is small. Also, wrong Harry Potter book.

I don't want to be obnoxious, but could you accept traditional spellings? I grew up on Irish folklore, and so for me leipreachán and bean sí come to mind before the anglicized spellings. I don't have this problem with many other mythologies, but I'm sure other quiz-takers do, and it would really us help if you could accommodate that.
