The cockatrice is often described as a two-legged dragon with the head of a rooster. In some tales they possess the ability to kill with their stare, breath or touch. They are said to be the product of an egg laid by a hen, hatched by toads and or snakes. If a cockatrice looks at it's own reflection or hears the crow of a rooster, it will die.
