Massachusetts Sightings?[edit]

In a book by Eric Carle called Dragons Dragons: and Other Creatures that Never Were, he claims that the creature was sighted during the colonization of Massachusetts. Can anyone verify this information?Why?How?

Abilities?[edit]

What are these "abilities" listed here? Is this from the original myth, or some modern game? 81.233.196.49 (talk) 12:39, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

I've removed it. The whole "lunar basilisk" thing sounds especially suspect, and I wouldn't be surprised if this was from Harry Potter or something. In any case, it wasn't referenced, and the article hardly needs to have a list smack in the middle of it. 97.104.210.67 (talk) 02:02, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Folk medicine[edit]

The folk medicine section details the uses this creature apparently had in folk medicine. Since this creature isn't real, how could it have had any use? Perhaps it was only speculated to have those uses, perhaps folk medicine practitioners lied about it, or perhaps the uses only appear in mythological or fictional works. Either way, this section needs clarification and references. McLerristarr | Mclay1 14:17, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
