Basilisk by Evodolka Basilisk by Evodolka
BASILISK
Latin - Basiliscus Vipera
Race - Demon
Length - 13m
Weight - 1135kg
Diet - Carnivore

The Basilisk is a creature of myth also known as the king of snakes due to it's crown like horns, a beast so dangerously poisonous that even the grass around it dies just with contact to the monster, merely looking into the eyes of this creature will kill you, if you were to stab it it's highly toxic blood would flow right up your blade and kill not only you but everything you were making contact with (if you were on a horse when this happened it would die too) truly a terrifying beast of legend worthy to be called "the King of all Snakes"
it's weaknesses are the cooing of a rooster and the only creature immune to the "death stare" is the mongoose (famed for their aggression towards snakes)

Hope you all like this, it was the first time i have drew a serpent with an actual snake looking head (last snake i drew before this was like 12 or so years ago when i was like 7) i'd say i did a pretty good job :D
though I know my depiction might not be THAT accurate to the myth
it wasn't giant like it is shown here only about 1.21m long, i just went with a giant to add to it's power over an entire species of reptiles :D
the pictures i usually see show it with a chicken like head rather than a snake looking one (not sure why)
and for the few of you wandering why it has legs when its a snake, the basilisk is usually depicted with up to 6 legs
my inspiration for this was when i saw the Dalamadur from monster hunter and i thought it looks so freaking awesome when it was coiled around a mountain :la:

either way i had a lot of fun with this one and best of luck to you all :D
