Special Containment Procedures: Any personnel interacting with SCP-XXXX are to have full foundation issue hazmat suits. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 are to be terminated and cremated on sight unless being used for experimentation. All other samples of SCP-XXXX are to be kept in a 2 X 2 X 2 meter hermetically sealed glass container. Testing must be approved by at least 2 level 4 class personnel.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a bacteria slimier in appearance to E. coli. SCP-XXXX infects subjects by touching any exposed skin or fluids of an infected subject or by air transmission if any SCP-XXXX-1 or SCP-XXXX-2 are terminated, becomes immobile or locates an open or crowded area.

Unlike any prokaryotic cells on record SCP-XXXX colonies are capable of locomotion via the growth of a random number of legs. Most colonies of SCP-XXXX appear as random shapes ranging from 1mm to 5cm in diameter or length, however 10% of naturally formed colonies take the shape of small insects(SCP-XXXX-1). Colonies that resemble insects are indistinguishable from insects of the same verity. In cases of infection the symptoms include mild pain and nausea, and itching. As of writing no cure has been discovered and the infection and fatality rate is 100%.

Upon infection SCP-XXXX begins to convert all cells in the subject(henceforth to be designated SCP-XXXX-2). Once the brain of SCP-XXXX-2 is converted, SCP-XXXX will undergo major mutations to resemble nerve cells. The new Cells act as SCP-XXXX-2's brain causing major behavioral changes making SCP-XXXX-2 to be more social.

Once SCP-XXXX-2 is fully converted they immediately seek out a open space or crowded area at which point the entirety of SCP-XXXX making up SCP-XXXX-2 disperses giving the impression of vaporization. It is this behavior that warrants SCP-XXXX's keter class.
