Monster, Day 2

It's a busy week here, so I'm going to let the monsters entertain you until I can get back to wordier posts. This is The Basilisk and the Weasel by Wenceslas Hollar, c.17th century.

Read more about the Basilisk, aka the Cockatrice, at The Medieval Bestiary.

A STINKY monster, to boot...

[Can KILL with its odor ...hmmmmmm....]

A critter I can learn from ;-)

thanks, babe.

I thought you'd enjoy the lethal scent angle, Chaya. Maybe we should declare the Cockatrice our official mascot.
