Special Containment Procedures: SCP-#### is to be contained within a 8m x 8m x 10m steel containment cell, fitted with a blast resistant interior. Feeding must be done with 3 square meals a day. No personnel are to enter SCP-####'s containment chamber armed under any circumstances. Any and all interactions with SCP-#### must be approved by level 3 clearance. In the event of a containment breach one, unarmed MTF is to attempt to lure SCP-#### back into its containment cell via food from a basic diet of veil and salmon. If this procedure fails, snipers armed with tranquilizers are to be placed at all exits from the facility and are to engage SCP-#### upon first sighting.

Requests by SCP-#### to have natural elements in its containment area have been approved, giving her access to a natural source of water, forest elements, and natural lighting via fiberglass window in the top of her containment chamber.

Description: SCP-#### appears to be a common komodo dragon with multiple uncommon features such as doubled weight and size when compared to a common komodo dragon, fangs that can increase and decrease in size depending primarily on SCP-####'s mood; and finally retractable claws that extend out four times further than that of a fully grown komodo.

Further testing has revealed SCP-#### to be in possession of an egg that appears to be a komodo dragon egg, hence forth known as SCP-####-A. This discovery has led to the discovery of SCP-#### being female and the mother of the egg. However, x-ray testing, weight test, and other mean of determining what is inside SCP-####-A have led to results determining that the egg holds no form of life within it's shell or anything within it. stranger still is the small but noticeable dent in the eggs shell. Why SCP-#### seems focused on protecting the egg is undetermined at this time. When questioned of the egg SCP-#### only stated "this egg will lead to the end of the world as you know it meat-bags" (see Addendum ####-A1).

Stanger still is the creatures attitude towards humans and its higher intelligence that seems to grow every day. For most cases involving D-class personnel, SCP-#### has been known to have an extremely docile nature and tends to engage in conversation with said D-class and is clearly sentient. For reasons unknown SCP-#### seems to be able to speak to most individuals in their native tongue and seems to know every language know to man. In most cases involving communications, SCP-#### has asked for the individuals help in escape and offers the persons own freedom in return, though no attempts to comply with this offer have occurred to date. Though friendly towards humans she inquires that they remain a minimum distance of 10 ft. from her at all times; She also asks that no other SCP's be brought before her at anytime.

However, if a person break this proximity rule of her and are armed or have had a history of violence that she seems to determine simply from talking to the individual, SCP-#### will grow vicious and attempt to grab the person that it believes to be an attacker. This is determined as a natural reaction and motherly protection against the person as she believes that the person may be attempting to harm the egg, but seems to have no concern for her own protection.

Once SCP-#### grabs a hold of the person who she believes to be the attacker, SCP-#### will open up its jaw and latch itself onto the cranium of the "attacker". SCP-#### will then proceed to suck an individuals complete and entire skeleton out of the person's body leaving behind nothing more than the skin, organs, veins, and clothing of the victim.

In all cases, SCP-#### has left all organs intact and in place as if the victim's skeleton was still in place such as the heart, lungs, and spinal cord. How SCP-2012 is able to do this and still manage to suck the person's skeleton out is still unknown, and why it only proceeds to do this with armed/violent personnel is even a bigger mystery.

It was discovered however, that the only organ that was not in place anymore was the brain. Further investigation led to the discovery that SCP-#### uses an individual's brain as a projectile weapon against any and all threats. This is done by a filter system, later discovered after an x-ray of SCP-####, within SCP-####'s throat that apparently draws to brain out of a skull and coats it with [DATA REDACTED] and stores within [DATA EXPUNGED].

When SCP-#### requires its use, it will hack and spit out the brain covered in what appears to be flammable substance of unknown chemical bias. This will turn to brain into an explosive projectile and when detonated will cause a miniature shockwave blast similar to that of [DATA EXPUNGED].

Any creature caught within the blast radius is immediately exposed to the chemical in which the brains are coated in which, upon further investigation, results in a flesh eating virus within the victim. In every one of these cases, victims have left behind nothing but their skeletons and mysteriously enough, the brain will remain intact as well. To which, in turn, SCP-#### will feed off of and will attempt to escape using the "projectiles" she has gathered during this feeding. If this fails she will become docile once more.

For reasons unknown, the bones and brains that SCP-#### devours does not seem to please it's appetite and it will most times ask for some food moments after attacking an individual. Further testing of how this occurs has led to no true revelation, but personnel have determined that the bones may be go through a process of [DATA EXPUNGED] immediately after suction.

Addendum: Notes on Discovery and Capture

SCP-#### was recovered on March (U+2588, ), (U+2588, ) in [DATA EXPUNGED]. The creature was brought to the foundation's attention after numerous reports of individuals being attacked by what was described as an unusually large komodo dragon. Interest for the foundation came when further reports of the victims (animal control personnel attempting to capture the komodo dragon and return it to the wild) have "no skeleton within them." When engaged by foundation personnel, the creature attacked killing 3 MTF through bone suction and [DATA EXPUNGED] the last MTF. Eventually snipers were called in to tranquilize SCP-#### and after 3 hours of hunting was led into containment on [DATA REDACTED].

**Addendum ####-A1**

(This is an interview between SCP-#### and Dr. (U+2588,        )

       Dr. (U+2588,        ): "Good evening SCP-####. How are you today?"

       SCP-####: "Good evening doctor I've been looking forward to this meeting.
       I'm doing quite well, for an encaged monster, thanks for asking".

       Dr. (U+2588,        ): "Your only in here because of how you were found.
       Do you think people are ready for you, considering how there were 
       5 boneless corpses around when we found you?"

       SCP-####: "THEY WERE ASKING FOR IT; THEY STARTED IT!!
       You of all people should know how I function,
       how I will protect my egg until it's life is assured 
       I wish for all humans to just leave my egg alone,
       I was forced to [DATA EXPUNGED]."

       Dr. (U+2588,        ):"I've stated in our last interview that I very much 
       understand that you egg means everything to you; 
       However, why do you insist upon protecting a hollow shell?
       What is in there really?

       SCP-####: "Although it doesn't concern you I suppose your the only
       "messenger" that I can trust....

       Dr. (U+2588,        ):"What is this message you speak of? TALK!

       SCP-####: "No need to raise your voice doctor; the message
       is simply this; This egg will burn all that you know until it is no 
       more, building will crumble, rivers will bleed, mountains will erupt,
       and my son will see that all of you suffer a fate worse than death.
       I am merely the protector.  That is all I will give you for today.
       Now leave my child needs to rest."

       Dr. (U+2588,        ):"Very well then, back to your chamber.
       Until next time ####.  Goodbye for now".    

       SCP-####: "Goodbye Doctor."

Results of Addendum-####-A1
Dr. (U+2588, ): Let it be known that SCP-#### has revealed nothing about the contents of SCP-####-A, but has revealed that the egg may hold something more hostile than SCP-#### itself.

After the results were reviewed by O-5 command, Dr. (U+2588, )'s request for the termination of SCP-####-A has been approved and is to be carried out whenever such an opportunity presents itself.
