Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: All personnel assigned to observation of SCP-XXXX are to be given cognitohazard tests bi-monthly (once every two months) after exposure to the projected area of affect. These tests are to be continuously given until four (4) months have passed since their exit of the project. SCP-XXXX is to be contained within a two kilometer (2km) diameter circle of the north-western portion of █████████ National Park in █████, ██████. This perimeter is to be patrolled by six (6) members of task force Ksi-2 ("Phantoms of the Operation"). These personnel are to be disguised as park rangers. Inside of the perimeter there is to be an unmarked but designated red zone at least half a kilometer (1/2km) from the any instance of SCP-XXXX. Personnel are only to be allowed entrance into the red zone if they show two (2) instances of the signature of any two (2) level-4 personnel and one (1) signature of a designated psychiatric physician for mental stability. All on site personnel are to be given one (1) Honeywell 5501n95m half face rebreather and four (4) replacement filters.

Description: SCP-XXXX refers to twenty-three (23) known instances of a plant group resembling the common red rose. The only exteriorly noticeable differences about these flora specimens is their distinct red and white coloring and their strong scent of beef, pork, poultry, and other meats. There are two known anomalous properties attributed to SCP-XXXX. They are listed as follows and explained after the listing.


Instances of fully blossomed heads of SCP-XXXX

Anomalous Properties of SCP-XXXX.

  1. The species' cognitohazardous ability to draw animals under the class of mammalia, including but not limited to canis lupus, felis catus, cervidae, and hominidae.
  2. The species' inability to be digested by any known mammal and ability to sprout from within the digestive tract of animals that eat the plant heads.

The heads of the instances of SCP-XXXX are described as "resembling slices of beef steak" and "smelling strongly of freshly cooked meats."

The first anomalous property noticeable when in the presence of any instance of SCP-XXX is the smell of meats and the insatiable urge to consume as many heads of the plants as they can before being stopped. Once someone has been stopped or consumes all instances in the immediate area they will continue normal actions with the acceptation of a change in appetite. This behavior continues for approximately forty-eight (48) hours. After this period of two days the subject who consumed the instances of SCP-XXXX will begin to feel tight contractions in their lower and mid abdomen. This feeling is quickly followed by a sharp shooting pain from the area around the naval (or belly-button). These pains and contractions will proceed for approximately anywhere from twenty-five (25) minutes and six (6) hours, after which a number of stems [relative to the amount of flowering head consumed] will sprout from the abdomen and chest area of the affected subject.
