* Basilisks actually have large hind feet with flaps of skin between each toe. The fact that they move quickly across the water, aided by their web-like feet, gives them the appearance of “walking on water”.
* Smaller basilisks can run about 10-20 meters on the water without sinking. Young basilisks can usually run farther than older ones.
* Like most reptiles, basilisks are active during the day.
