Basilisk

Basilisks are said to infest the jungles of Yi Ti [1]. In some places they are used to fight other animals, such as dogs, as wagers are made on the outcomes. A basilisk is able to tear a large dog to pieces.[2]

Basilisks are venomous and are the source of 'Basilisk venom' [3], a paste spiced with basilisk blood which gives meat a savory scent but which induces a violent madness in any creature with warm blood, whether man or beast. [4]
