Item #: SCP-2989

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-2989 is to be kept within a 1.60 x 1.60 kilometer concrete wall, topped with barbed wire, approximately 6 meters high and sixty 60 centimeters thick. 2 level-D personnel are to be on patrol at any given time, as (do to location) civilians will try to enter the containment area.

Description: SCP-2989 strongly resembles a cave, approximately 2414 meters long, 15 meters wide and 11 meters high. Most of SCP-2989's body is underground, with only 482 meters visible, covered with a thick layer of soil and plant matter. It seems almost completely incapable of movement, consuming only animals and/or humans that enter it's mouth. SCP-2989 has long "teeth" resembling stalactites and stalagmites, though it is thought to be unable to close it's mouth. Behind SCP-2989's "teeth" are rows of black, 10 centimeter long spikes, which lay completely flat until touched. When stimulated, these spikes raise up in a backwards facing position, to puncture the flesh of it's prey. SCP-2989 is constantly producing a sticky, foul-smelling venom, comparable in toxicity with that of the cone snail. The muscular rings lining the inside of it's mouth ripple backwards, using the spikes to drag food back to it's throat. The blood of SCP-2989 is a dark amber color and is highly toxic. It seems to have only the most basic brain functions. SCP-2989 has no visible eyes, ears, nose or tongue.

Additional: SCP-2989 is carnivorous, having been found to be able to convert all animal matter to liquid within a matter of 24 hours. SCP-2989 cannot digest plant matter or inorganic material.
