SCP-XXXX upon its discovery by MTF Epsilon-6 .


Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept inside a standard large quadruped containment cell. Everyday SCP-XXXX is to be fed with 300 kg of plant food and grasses. Its chamber has to be cleaned every week by two staff personnel. Any change in SCP-XXXX behavior should be reported to the site's administrator.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a sapient Woolly Mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius). Its size is approximately 5 meters in height and 4.1 tones weight. SCP-XXXX maintains a thick layer of a brown and grey coat, four tusks with approximately 2 and 1.5 meters each one and a trunk which is 2 meters in length.
During several tests, SCP-XXXX has demonstrated high intelligence, accuracy, and speed on resolving memory tests. The entity's IQ is specified to be 135. SCP-XXXX can detect what the foundation personnel says to him via paintings and sign language (See Addendum XXXX.2). The creature has shown a very docile and compliant behavior towards the foundation staff.

Addendum XXXX.1: Discovery
SCP-XXXX was discovered in 21 January 2008 in Western Siberia by the reports of residents of a giant elephant walking on the streets. MTF Epsilon-6 "Village Idiots" was assigned to investigate the area. SCP-XXXX attacked the MTF team, immediately after its discovery. The MTF squad was able to neutralize SCP-XXXX and sent it to Site-164. The residents were provided a Class A & B Amnestics.
After waking up, the Foundation staff entered the chamber to provide medical help from scars attached throughout its body. SCP-XXXX broke the glasses from one of the liquids and used its trunk to illustrate something on the wall of the chamber. Researcher █████ Mathews noticed the intention of the behavior and called other staff members to bring paints to SCP-XXXX. The creature illustrated five creatures resembling mammoths.
With the permission of the site's administrator, there have been multiple intelligence tests with SCP-XXXX. (See Addendum XXXX.2)

SCP-XXXX RESEARCH FILE


Head of the Research:

  • Dr. Thomas Henson(Researcher/Scientific Department)
  • Dr. Benjamin Hensley (Researcher/Scientific Department)

Assistants:

  • Anthony Stevenson
  • Ethan Ross

Description of the Research: The staff will test the mental, psychic and intellectual capabilities of SCP-XXXX throughout various tests leading to an interview log planned in 2012 2011.

  • Memory tests will determine if SCP-XXXX possesses high mental capabilities.
  • Drawing tests will be an important tool to identify the style of it as will be used on the interview log.
  • Sign language is important for the communication between the foundation personnel and SCP-XXXX.

Results:

  • Memory test - 100% (See Addendum XXXX.3)
  • Drawing test - 70% (See Addendum XXXX.4)
  • Sign language - 79% (See Addendum XXXX.5)

Average: 83%

MEMO FROM DR. BENJAMIN HENSLEY

Recorded in 26/11/2010


<BEGIN LOG>

During the research, SCP-XXXX has shown incredible accuracy in the memory tests, while the drawing tests were had different outcome. The results weren't as we expected, the mammoth had a unique style of painting, probably, something it had been learning for a long time.
The sign language course was the hardest part of the research. SCP-XXXX couldn't understand what we were trying to tell with the signs. What we did is that our assistants provided many tutorials for it. The tutorials would take many months and a lot of effort for the mammoth to understand it, but at least we made it. SCP-XXXX is ready for the interview.
Now…from some observation, we noticed it doing contradictions with the staff personnel. On different days, showed us enthusiasm, in others showed a dump. I'm going keeping this behavior as a note that it is a sapient creature, something that these types of species aren't capable of. There must be other creatures like it, there's no other possibility.

Addendum XXXX.7: Interview Log

TRANSCRIPTION OF THE VIDEO FEED


Interviewer: Dr. Henson

Interviwee: SCP-XXXX

Date: 30/11/2011

Note: Ross will assist on communication between Dr. Henson and SCP-XXXX.


<BEGIN LOG>

Dr. Henson: Hello SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX raises its trunk with a lot tone trumpet.

Dr. Henson: Today I'm going to ask you several questions and you will answer me by painting on that white cardboard paper by using the paintings next to you. So without further ado, let's start the interview. First question is…What is your origin?

Ross signalizes SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX gets the black color and starts painting several humanoids and mammoths. The creature than gets a red color to cover the humanoids. It draws a giant square around the mammoths and several triangles inside it.

Dr. Henson: This is your origin of your species, right? Can you raise your trunk?

Ross signalizes SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX raises its trunk.

Dr. Henson: What were you doing in that time that we captured you?

Ross signalizes SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX draws a figure strongly resembling a cave and a mammoth near it.

Dr. Henson: You entered inside a cave?

Ross signalizes SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX raises its trunk.

Dr. Henson: After you entered that cave you couldn't find it again, right?

Ross signalizes SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX raises its trunk again.

There was a silence for 2 minutes.

Dr. Henson: Okay, SCP-XXXX, thanks for coming in interview with us.

SCP-XXXX Discovery Map

<BEGIN LOG>

After the interview logs, I checked the video recording several times. The mammoth is trying to show us that it is coming from a cave…But where is this cave? Okay, so…I gathered the reports of the civilians about SCP-XXXX from 18 to 21 January 2008. I made a small map that shows the locations of the accounts and the discovery point of the mammoth. The blue spot is the cave's location; the red spots are the civilian reports of SCP-XXXX, and the green spot is the discovery point by MTF Epsilon-6 . The spots where SCP-XXXX has been mentioned are within an area of 830 kilometers square. The civilian reports lead to the ███████ Cave which is the only one in this area. If what the mammoth says is true than the cave might be an extra-dimensional portal. I'm going asking the site administrator to authorize an exploration log to the cave.
