I love this illustration by Stephanie Linossier of the mythological creature El Basilisco from the Chiloé region: 
“El Basilisco hatches from a hen’s egg, but is a snake with a rooster’s red crest. Concealing itself beneath floorboards it feeds on the saliva of its host family as they sleep. The family members develop dry coughs and die before El Basilisco abandons their house” - DK Eyewitness Travel
Crikey!
