    #Animal type

    Cockatrice is an animal appearing in western myths and legends. Once an egg given birth by a cock is hatched by a snake or a toad, a cockatrice is born. It has a rooster’s head, two feet, and a reptile’s tail. Once a creature makes an eye contact with a cockatrice or touches it, the creature turns into a stone. Such a feature is quite similar to that of Basilisk and Medusa.
