Basilisks are creatures left over from the Mage Wars. They are "stupid, incredibly dangerous, and ravenous carnivores who would eat anything that couldn't run away from them." (Winds of Fate)

No one wants to kill a basilisk if they don't have to. In addition to being very difficult to kill, they also fulfill a specific niche in the ecosystem. Basilisks are primarily scavengers, and are the only creatures that will eat a dead wyrsa or colddrake.
