A Cockatrice comes into being when the egg of a cock is hatched by a toad or serpent. It resembles a chicken or cock with the lower body of a lizard with a long scaled tail. A cockatrice is able of flight with its wings, some feathery, some batlike. It is said to have a smell to melt metal with or let plants rot at once in it’s vicinity and a look upon which other beings are turned into stone. Luckily these creatures are very rare and can only be killed by being shown it’s own reflection in a mirror.
