The Basilisk is a huge, eight-legged reptile which prefers to live in warm or underground places. It is a creature of Chaos, originating from the very first Incursions of Chaos, and is now well-established in the Old World, if not common. Basilisks are extremely dangerous beasts, whose gaze can petrify living creatures. The petrifying effect has a range of 10 yards and can affect a single creature at a time. The effect is permanent. In addition to their gaze attack, Basilisks attack with two claws and one bite.[1a][1b]

A 15-foot-long lizard, with eight legs ending in clawed feet and a broad head with powerful jaws.[1b]
