A version of SCP-XXXX found in the wild.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is kept in a locked storage box in Site 66. This storage box must contain at least 9 halving-thicknesses of lead, then coated in an obsidian casing. SCP-XXXX must also have a feeding tube fitted with 6 halving-thicknesses of lead affixed to the side of the casing. This box must be at least 7 meters away from any other surface. Additionally, a motion detector is affixed to detect any devoid position.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a rodent-like creature approximately 10 cm in length. Radiation levels emitted by subject approximates to 560 REMs. When SCP-XXXX is approached, radiation totals to 1500 REMs. The entity's bite injects lethal amounts of plutonium into the bloodstream, resulting in organ failure in humanoid subjects and leads to death. Researchers █████, ████, and ███ believe that the organism's species exist further in the wild, and were created by [DATA EXPUNGED]. The species of rodentia noted as SCP-XXXX is guinea pig, amplified with a possible element known as [DATA EXPUNGED].

Subject is passive approximately 75% of the time, but when presented either a Geiger Counter or an EMF reader, SCP-XXXX will immediately lunge at the object, specimen, or person holding said radiation meter. This will inject them with a lethal dose of radioactive venom, which will cause death in 2-3 weeks. During this period, those injected will experience symptoms similar to radiation poisoning at the level of when a plutonium core goes critical. There is no known anti-venom for SCP-XXXX.

Retrieval Log: SCP-XXXX was found in an abandoned store located in [REDACTED], after locals began exhibiting symptoms of radiation poisoning. MTF agents were dispatched to the location. Inside the shop was a single instance of SCP-XXXX. Specimen's cage was the only object with electricity in this store. A shopkeeper was found inside the shop behind the cashier's desk. Scanning the subject showed radiation levels of 1500 REMS.

Addendum: Experiment XXXX-E1 - Dr. ████

Persons Involved: Dr. ████, Personnel D-4785

Experiment Purpose: To test whether or not lethal injection would be negated (or at least reduced) with potassium iodide.

Dr. ████: Alright, take these pills. We are going to give you fifteen minutes to digest them.

D-4785: Alright.

<Skip to 23:██>

Dr. ████: Fifteen minutes are up. All you have to do is scan that thing with this Geiger counter.

D-4785: (Inside containment cell) That… thing! It's… it's hissing! Don't do this! Get me outta here!

[SCP-XXXX lunges and bites D-4785. D-4785 is then removed from the room.]

<End Log, 27:██>

Dr. ████'s Note: D-4785 passed away in the infirmary quarantine of Site-███ two weeks later.
