Item #: SCP-xxxx

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-xxxx is to be contained within an airtight 4x4x3 meter cell composed of Grade 50 Carbon steel no less than 12 centimeters thick. The interior of SCP-xxxx’s cell is to contain the standard amenities for animal SCP. The entrance to SCP-xxxx’s cell is to be sealed behind an airlock, and any personnel entering SCP-xxxx’s cell are required to don Type 1 hazardous material suits before entering.

Description: SCP-xxxx is a fleshy creature approximately 0.6 meters long, with two limbs projecting from its front and a bulbous tail with an orifice analogous to the human sphincter. In order to move, SCP-xxxx pulls itself forward with its front limbs. Its maximum speed has been recorded at 4 kilometers per hours, slightly slower than the average human walking speed. Although not possessing of opposable thumbs, SCP-xxxx possesses prehensile fingers capable of performing both power and precision grips.The subject is sapient, possessing problem solving capabilities and the ability to understand abstract concepts, but is either unwilling or unable to communicate with Founation personnel. The subject is able to consume any kind of matter, although it has difficulty consuming and breaking down solid material with a crystalline molecular structure. The molecules it absorbs are broken into their component atoms, at which point the atoms themselves are forced to undergo nuclear fission, with the energy from this reaction being absorbed directly by SCP-xxxx. To date, no significant radioactivity has been detected as a byproduct of this process, indicating that the process is somehow restricted to the space within SCP-xxxx’s body.

Seemingly as a byproduct of this reaction, SCP-xxxx will at random intervals emit a gaseous blue substance from its tail orifice. From testing, it has been determined that SCP-xxxx will reflexively emit SCP-xxxx-2 as a fear response, or in self-defense. The substance’s chemical composition [REDACTED], leading researchers to label the substance as SCP-xxxx-2. Upon coming into contact with living organisms, SCP-xxxx-2 will begin to break down the organism at the molecular level. An exposure time to SCP-xxx-2 of less than ten seconds results in severe injuries and a fifty three percent mortality rate. An exposure time of more than ten seconds, or direct inhalation of the substance, shows a one hundred percent mortality rate. SCP-xxxx-2 does not seem to react with inorganic matter, or with inanimate organic matter. How this is possible is unknown, but it has been hypothesized that the substance might react to the minute electrical currents caused by neurotransmission within living organisms. The only living organism not affected by SCP-xxxx-2 is SCP-xxxx.

SCP-xxxx was discovered in ██/██/████ when reports of gas attacks and strange alien entities in ██████ led Foundation personnel to investigate. SCP-xxxx was found lying on the ground outside of a suburban home whose residents were found deceased due to exposure to SCP-xxxx-2. Upon approaching the subject, the agents were able to easily apprehend it due to its small size and weak bodily structure. SCP-xxxx did not make any attempts to assault the agents. The subject was transported to Site ███ and placed in containment.

Study of SCP-xxxx’s physiology have proven difficult. analysis of tissue scrapings is consistent with those of a human fetus, but the subject's morphology does not match any stage of fetal development. X-Rays are unable to penetrate its exterior, and it is still unknown how the subject forces atoms to undergo fission, how it contains the reaction within its own body, or how the reaction leads to the manufacturing of SCP-xxxx-2. Research assistant █████ has suggested vivisection as means of learning more, but this proposal is currently denied due to the risk of either accidentally killing SCP-xxxx. If no substantial progress is made within the next six months, the subject of vivisection will be reconsidered.
