Vasiliscul: Şopârla Iisus

Prima dată am auzit de Vasilisc în melodia asta:

Apoi am început să fiu interesată de heraldică şi l-am cunoscut pe dumnealui:

In European bestiaries and legends, a basilisk (English pronunciation: /ˈbæzɪlɪsk/,[1] from the Greek βασιλίσκος basilískos, "little king;" Latin Regulus) is a legendary reptile reputed to be king of serpents and said to have the power to cause death with a single glance. According to the Naturalis Historia of Pliny the Elder, the basilisk of Cyrene is a small snake, "being not more than twelve fingers in length," that is so venomous that it leaves a wide trail of deadly venom in its wake, and its gaze is likewise lethal; its weakness is in the odour of the weasel, which, according to Pliny, was thrown into the basilisk's hole, recognizable because all the surrounding shrubs and grass had been scorched by its presence.  The basilisk is alleged to be hatched by a rooster from the egg of a serpent or toad (the reverse of the cockatrice, which was hatched from a rooster's "egg" incubated by a serpent or toad). In Medieval Europe, the description of the creature began taking on features from roosters.
