Getting it to eat the egg is pretty easy, just throw an egg on the ground, then get close enough to it (maybe on a fast tame) for it to come out of the ground. Run away towards the egg with the basilisk following you, and then keep running until out of targeting range. Heading behind a giant rock or metal plate helps. Once the basilisk stops following you, itโ€™s will head directly over to the egg and eat it! I got two basilisks this way today :D ๐Ÿ†™ if helpful :)
