The Department of Cryptozoology Database

While the containment of SCPs forms the most important part of our work, we must accept that the world is filled with anomalous lifeforms. Though the preservation of normality requires that we contain these lifeforms, many of them are not deserving of full SCP classification. Thus, we catalogue these lifeforms here, that information on them is centralised and easily accessible to Foundation personnel.

Description: A species of feline whose fur possesses antimemetic properties when raised at certain angles, causing others to become unable to acknowledge their presence.
Discovery: Cheshire, England.
Current Status: Fully contained. 86 live specimens held at Site 172.
Notes: Genetically compatible with domestic cats. Projections show the species would rapidly out-compete non-anomalous felines if reintroduced to the wild.


Description: A large reptile that vaguely resembles modern crocodyliforms, though with a much more compact build and no tail, standing on average 8m tall. Spontaneously appears in the Gansu province of China, north of Jiuquan, on July 6th every two years, though possesses no anomalous properties of its own.
Discovery: Jiuquan, China, while attacking a civilian gathering. An additional three instances were later discovered approximately 40km north of the town, having formed a small pack. All instances terminated during containment due to their violent nature and great size.
Current Status: Classified extinct until next manifestation event.
Notes: Lack of existing fossil evidence suggests manifestation begun relatively recently. The cause and origin remains unknown. Termination of instances is difficult due to their immense size and dense build.


Description: Species of bird superficially resembling the Saxaul sparrow. Specimens have no weight, allowing them to stay in the air indefinitely but making them extremely susceptible to changing air currents.
Discovery: Central Turkmenistan.
Current Status: 17 specimens in containment at Site 172. Unknown number still in the wild.
Notes: Due to their behaviour and appearance, believed to be the result of a single anomalous event affecting a group of baseline sparrows. Theorised that any uncontained specimens would have died of starvation or dehydration due to the inability to properly control their flight.


Description: A species of insect resembling members of the family Formicidae, but matching no known ant species. Generates an electrical field when in close proximity to other members of their species, with the magnitude of the field increasing with the numbers in the colony.
Discovery: Lossiemouth, Scotland. Found inside a colony built around exposed power cables in an abandoned house.
Current Status: The only known colony is stable in containment at Site 172.
Notes: Electrical field is used as a defence mechanism; the colony is able to direct the field into a single targeted discharge when threatened.
