NAME ORIGIN
    A basilisk is a creature found in classical mythology, a serpent or lizard with the ability to kill with its breath or glance. There is also a tropical American lizard named the basilisk. The name comes from the Greek word basilískos meaning "little king", so named because of a small crest resembling a crown atop the basilisk's head.
