Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures:

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 24.5 kg crystal ball, 650 millimeters in diameter. Aesthetically and compositionally, SCP-XXXX is non-anomalous.

SCP-XXXX's anomalous effect occur when a single human subject places both hands on the surface of SCP-XXXX. Upon doing so, a number of arthropods will appear within SCP-XXXX after a short period of time and animate, appearing to crawl, fly or swim inside SCP-XXXX. Arthropods within SCP-XXXX are also capable of making sound as standard for non-anomalous arthropods of the same species.

Any arthropods that appear within SCP-XXXX usually have some significant relation to the subject currently in contact with SCP-XXXX. In addition, arthropods within SCP-XXXX seem to be aware of the subject in contact with SCP-XXXX, and may occasionally react to outside actions they perform. Upon losing contact with SCP-XXXX, any arthropods within it demanifest.

SCP-XXXX may occasionally generate a habitat with which the arthropod lives in within itself. Arthropods are able to interact with the habitat as usual, and the habitat demanifests along with the arthropods upon losing contact with SCP-XXXX.

Addendum XXXX-01: Below are several tests performed with SCP-XXXX.

Test XXXX-001
Subject: Dr. Ramora
Manifestation: Upon contact, SCP-XXXX generated several Vespula alascensis (North American yellowjackets). The density of the arthropods were too dense to observe any additional habitation.
Notes: Dr. Ramora recalled being stung by a yellowjacket nest at her grandfather's house when she was a child.

Test XXXX-007
Subject: Dr. Connors
Manifesation: Upon contact, SCP-XXXX generated several insects from the order Lepidoptera (The order of butterflies and moths) appeared within an unremarkable humid forest.
Notes: Dr. Connors has been collecting and pinning butterflies and moths for the last 18 years.

Test XXXX-015
Subject: Dr. Gilbert
Manifestation: Upon contact, SCP-XXXX generated several Cancer borealis (Jonah crabs) appeared on an unremarkable beach. Upon noticing Dr. Gilbert, all instances either became aggressive or began to move away from him. Upon reaching the "border" of the habitat opposite Dr. Gilbert, instances demanifested.
Notes: Dr. Gilbert frequently visits his uncle in Maine, a crab fisherman. Their relationship is described as particularly close.

Test XXXX-022
Subject: Dr. Garcia
Manifestation: Upon contact, a single female Brachypelma Emilia (Mexican redleg tarantula) appeared within a shallow hole of dirt. The instance, upon noticing Dr. Friedman, attempted to move towards her and appeared to impact the glass of SCP-XXXX.
Notes: Dr. Friedman had a pet tarantula in college, which had only died two years prior to this experiment. Dr. Friedman recognized the markings as identical to her deceased pet.

Test XXXX-026
Subject: Dr. Westington
Manifestation: See Addendum XXXX-02.
