 If you have read the Harry Potter series, you have definitely heard about the Basilisk. It is the huge snake in "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets." The basilisk slithers through the pipes in the walls of Hogwarts. Harry hears whispering that says "Kill Harry Potter." Harry can hear this because he can speak parseltongue. If you can speak parseltongue, it means that you can understand snake language. Harry has demonstrated this skill, in the first book and the second book. If you look directly at the basilisk's eyes, you will die. Many people saw the Basilisk but did not die because they did not look directly at it's eyes. They looked through a camera, or a mirror, or a reflection in the water, or even through a ghost. These people only got paralyzed. The only person that I know of that died from the Basilisk was Moaning Myrtle.
