Description: SCP-2534 is a race of minuscule beings, sharing traits of plant and animal physiology. SCP-2534 stands at 2 centimeters tall and 0.2 kilograms. SCP-2534 varies in colors, most commonly seen in Red, Yellow, and Blue. It stays in groups of up to twenty individuals, observed in cooperative behavior in almost every aspect. SCP-2534 is capable of lifting five times its mass, strength increasing with numbers. SCP-2534 possesses a body growth resembling in both appearance and biology to a tree leaf, which it uses to absorb sunlight for energy.

It is unknown currently as to the diet of SCP-2534, the only substance ever consumed directly being nectar. It doesn't appear to need solid food for its survival, able to get it's nutrition from sunlight as well as direct consumption of liquid matter.

SCP-2534 has been observed gathering various objects, and bringing the items back to a five inch tall, three-legged device known as SCP-2534-2. Upon placing the item directly underneath it, SCP-2534-2 will them instinctively warp the item inside it. After approximately two seconds, the 'pedals' on top will start to activate, and the flower of SCP-2534-2 will release numerous amounts of seeds, which appear to be SCP-2534's juvenile form. The amount of seeds produced vary from two to fifty at one time. It is unknown as to how SCP-2534-2 is able to reproduce SCP-2534 with such efficiency, and seems to be vital to SCP-2534's survival.

The leaf on SCP-2534's head manifests during the seasonal changes. During January, the leaf will start to morph and will turn into a flower bud during the month of February. The bud will proceed to open into a fully bloomed flower by middle march, behavior mimicking a regular flowering plant.
