First mentioned on the "Pocket Guide to the Empire", Basilisks are horrible flying chimeras resembling giant poisonous serpents with feathered heads and wings, and a giant scorpion-like tail, created by powerfull alchemists, commonly on Valenwood. The process is clouded in mistery, but is known that they born of eggs laid by male snakes consorting with other male snakes. The egg must be incubated for forty-four days by a rooster, which is devoured by the little beast as soon as it hatches, but certainly the process is much more complex. So, as you can see, the process is exactly the opposite of the one used to create cockatrices. 
Legends tells that Basilisks hates everything that lives so fiercely that its glance turns the living to stone and that only a bold adventurer with a mirror can deflect its deadly gaze and defeat the beast, but this are just legends, but based in a fact, the venon spited by Basilisks not only poisons you, but also paralize their victim.
They also do not shun direct fights, in which they strike furiously with wing and tail in an attempt to exhaust their foes. The wings have enormous spurs that are very poisonous. Bites are also dangerous, due to their poisonous sharp teeth.
But their biggest weapon are the scorpion like tail, with a specially venomous poison on the stinger on the end of the tail.
They are smaller and weaker than a dragon, and slightly smaller and weaker than a Griffin too, but are very fast on air and land.
They occur commonly in Valenwood, created by bosmer alchemists, but they can be encountered in skyrim too, specially in the swamps of morthal.

ABOUT MIHAIL MONSTERS AND ANIMALS: It will include animals, monsters, undead and Daedra to expand your gameplay in an immersive and lore-friendly way. Since I don’t have many yet, I’ll be releasing individual mods for each creature, but in the future, I will release a complete Mihail Monsters and Animals pack.


Mihail- basilisk model, textures, animations, sounds,
loot, effects, game implementation
the wings of the beast are a re-modeled and re-texturized version
of the cockatrice wings from my cockatrice mod

Some assets used on this mod belong too:
CD PROJEKT RED- since they are the counterpart of the cockatrices, and i used cd projekt red models for cockatrices mod, i used the cockatrices wings (but modified by me) for the wings of my basilisk, to make both variants look similar
