Basilisks only look like serpents in Harry Potter. In real mythology they look like big reptilian chickens, because they are a chickens egg that is hatched under a snake.

I know right. When the answer was revealed I was confused because i thought they were more of a creepy chicken-looking thing.

Actually, I think you're confused with a Cockatrice, which was believed to be born from the egg of a 7 year old rooster
+1
level 21
Jul 27, 2015
the basilisk is a serpent's or toad's egg hatched by a rooster, not laid by the rooster or hatched by a snake, like the cockatrice is the opposite, like australian viking said.
+1
level 7
Oct 22, 2013
I was always led to believe it (Basilisk) was a reptile, but not a serpent - like a gigantic almost alligator-like thing. That's how they're portrayed in D&D, I think.

level 10
Nov 8, 2013
I answered cockatrice first, thinking that, with modern interpretations being used for werewolf, the cockatrice was considered smaller.
+1
level 25
Apr 5, 2014
No, thats correct, a basilisk is a large snake. You're probably thinking of a Cockatrice.
+2
level 2
Jun 4, 2014
Incorrect, In Harry Potter it appears as a giant snake. Serpent really refers to any reptile, which a Basilisk is. A Basilisk is thought to be more of a giant lizard though. What you are thinking of is a Cocatrice, which mythologically, has the same effect when you are looked at.
+1
level 50
Jun 16, 2014
Actually, they also look like serpents in Percy Jackson, or, to be more precise, Heroes of Olympus. Much better than Harry Potter.

Correct. The name "Basilisk" means "little crown".

According to this it's described by different sources as different things. One says a small snake, the other says similar to a cockatrice. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basilisk
+1
level 12
Jan 19, 2015
Nope, a basilisk is hatched by a rooster from the egg of a serpent or toad. It's a cockatrice that's hatched from a chicken egg by a serpent.

They look like serpents in Percy Jackson as well. They are small snake like creatures that breathe fire. But that might just be in HoO

Pliny the Elder had it as a small snake, I guess that is what they are going from. Apparently weasels are deadly. Go figure. If I could kill stuff with a glance, and only weasels could resist, I would just make my minions kill all the weasels, but apparently it wasn't that smart.

Actually, Erikthev, it is much like an octopus, see? Their blood, class, phylum, kingdom, subclass, and geographical distribution are all exactly the same. A spider and an ant are very different. However, the mythical Kraken is indeed an octopus, as seen in these pictures: Octopus: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.flamboroughheadsac.org.uk/globalassets/images/slideshows/Marine%2520Wildlife/octopus1.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.flamboroughheadsac.org.uk/storyboards/marinewildlife/iframe.php?StoryID%3D7&h=194&w=259&tbnid=89fDcIpPgvk5EM:&zoom=1&q=octopus&tbnh=160&tbnw=213&usg=__D00DGwzP0iM2WHfZAUQGRp9YJbI=&docid=frFn_WlRqajYtM&itg=1&sa=X&ei=xJ6fU72qBo3uoAS_pIKgBw&ved=0CH4Q_B0wDA Squid: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squid#mediaviewer/File:Giant_squid_melb_aquarium03.jpg Kraken painting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kraken#mediaviewer/File:Colossal_octopus_by_Pierre_Denys_de_Montfort.jpg

a basilisk is not small, its gigantic!
+1
level 30
May 12, 2014
Actually in the original legends, it is small. "Basilisk" literally means "small king," because it was believed to be very small but incredibly poisonous. It left a trail of poison in its wake and could kill with a single glance, but it was a small reptile with a chicken-like head.

You might be confused by Harry Potter.

Oct 22, 2013
I got 19. I can't believe I couldn't think of Basilisk! I think it was because of the fact it said "small". When I played Eye of the Beholder (an AD&D game) the basilisks were NOT small, lol!

Sep 29, 2016
Centaur is a Horse body with man's torso and head. Tikbalang is a humanoid body with a horse's head and horse feet. It could be considered half man - half horse. Perhaps the clue should specify.

On the flip side, I watched the Sea of Monsters with my kids over Christmas break, and there were a couple gems in there that made it worth watching. The first was when Dionysus pours himself a drink of wine and it turns into water in his glass, he looks at it and says "You know, the Christians have a guy who could do that trick in reverse. Now THAT'S a God!" The second was Nathan Fillion / Hermes talking about a tv show that was the best one ever... so of course it was cancelled.

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.

well it wouldn't have been very dramatic if it was just a small lizard. plus it's fiction, the author can portray it however they please. In reality, a lot of these fictional characters are just common animals (mermaids, for instance, are believed to come from manatees - not so cool, huh?)
