Warhammer Online Cockatrice.

The Cockatrice is a repulsive Chaos-influenced beast with sorcerous capabilities. While this curious creature has very fast reactions and a great number of claws, it is not very strong, martially skilled or even particularly resistant to damage, when compared to creatures like Dragon or even a Varghulf.[1]

However, the sorcerous capabilities of this monster allow it simply turn the assailants into stone with a simple stare, showing a notable similarity to the Sepulchral Stalkers. As such, the enemies should not ever look it in the eye if they hope to emerge victorious. Even if they manage to wound the agile beast, it is likely that it will simply fly away, prefering to live long then die hard.[1]

If cornered it will go beserk, clawing and shreiking madly. [2a]
