This week we range across the world to solve (sort of) the mystery of the wyvern, the basilisk, the cockatrice, and crowing snakes!
From left to right, or whatever since the three have been confused since at least the middle ages: the basilisk, the cockatrice, and the wyvern.
The king cobra, or maybe the basilisk.
The Egyptian mongoose/ichneumon, or maybe the cockatrice.
Thanks to listener Richard E. for suggesting this week’s topic!
