Its legs get partially submerged. So this is just swimming with more than just head sticking out of the water. (when you run, you have both feet in the air after every step. so technically you're flying)

The basilisk sometimes runs as a biped. Basilisks have the unique ability to "walk" on water and, because of this, they have been dubbed as "The Jesus Lizard" or "The Jesus Christ Lizard" in reference to the biblical passage of Matthew 14:22-34. On water, the basilisk can run at a velocity of 1.5 meters (4.8 feet) per second for approximately 4.5 meters (14.75 feet) before sinking on all fours and swimming. Flaps between their toes help support the basilisk, creating a larger surface and a pocket of air.

They soooooo wouldn't have taken Jesus seriously if that's what he looked like when he walked on water.

ah... so the Bible wasn't lying to me after all... it just failed to mention that Jesus had a tail to counterbalance himself... O:)
