Basilisks are enormous lizards known for their deadly venom. They are generally found in deserts and dry regions.
Their scales are iron hard and are usually dark green or spotted black in color.
Basilisk venom, the deadliest poison known to man, can be extracted from a basilisk’s fangs. It will quickly kill an adult human. The venom is also of use to alchemists. When in contact with water, the venom will fizz and steam.
