Disruption Class:
Risk Class:



Special Containment Procedures: As SCP-XXX consists of three separate components, the following containment procedures have been divided accordingly.

SCP-XXX-1 is to be maintained and monitored by Foundation staff at Site-65. Any changes in its rate of growth are to be recorded. All possible SCP-XXX-2 sightings are to be reported to personnel on SCPF Mothersbaugh. In the event that SCP-XXX-2 consumes any part of SCP-XXX-1, personnel aboard SCPF Mothersbaugh are to carry out Procedure XXX-001.

SCP-XXX-3 and SCP-XXX-4 Are to be discreetly trailed at all times by Foundation submarine SCPF Mothersbaugh. Changes in the behavior of SCP-XXX-3 and SCP-XXX-4 are to be reported to personnel stationed at Site-65.

Procedure XXX-001 consists of the following steps:

  1. All personnel aboard SCPF Mothersbaugh are to report to the submarine's sleeping quarters, which have been reinforced to protect against excessive Akiva radiation.
  2. Upon the sending of an all-clear notice from Site-65, SCPF Mothersbaugh is to be positioned to face SCP-XXX-3 and SCP-XXX-4. A floodlight is to be shone on SCP-XXX-5 to prevent further growth.
  3. A remotely controlled submersible is to be deployed to contain the SCP-XXX-5 instance.

All recovered SCP-XXX-5 instances are to be moved from aboard SCPF Mothersbaugh to the nearest Foundation site on land, where they are to be contained within separate high-security large humanoid containment chambers.

Description: SCP-XXX is the designation given to five anomalies.

  • SCP-XXX-1 is a saguaro cactus (Carnegiea gigantea), growing 10 miles north of Indian Springs, Nevada.
  • SCP-XXX-2 is the designation given to any round-tailed ground squirrels (Xerospermophilus tereticaudus) within a two-meter radius around SCP-XXX-1.
  • SCP-XXX-3 is the animate corpse of a cryptid resembling the extinct Kronosaurus. The internal organs, skeletal system, and musculature of SCP-XXX-3 have been removed and replaced with an airtight metallic apparatus composed of an unknown material, the interior of which contains an airlock, a small compartment filled with shelves of canned food, two leather seats, and a rudimentary touchscreen interface. A metal hatch bearing the inscription "OBSKURA" on its interior has been installed in the side of SCP-XXX-3.
  • SCP-XXX-4 is the corpse of a giant squid (Architeuthis dux). SCP-XXX-4 is attached to the head of SCP-XXX-3 by its tentacles.
  • SCP-XXX-5 are cocoons of various sizes1 containing entities resembling human infants. Instances of SCP-XXX-5 possess mild ontokinetic capabilities

When an instance of SCP-XXX-2 consumes any part of SCP-XXX-1, SCP-XXX-4 becomes animate and detaches itself from the head of SCP-XXX-3 while prying the mouth of SCP-XXX-3 open with its tentacles. SCP-XXX-4 then pulls an instance of SCP-XXX-5 out of the mouth of SCP-XXX-3. This process produces excessive amounts of Akiva radiation.

SCP-XXX was discovered when an unidentified vessel later found to be a German U-Boat was found floating off the coast of South Africa. The vessel was found empty save for documents relating to SCP-XXX, and showed signs of intense Akiva exposure.

Two human skeletons and a small leather-bound journal were recovered from within SCP-XXX-3 upon its discovery. Sections from the journal have been included in Addendum XXX-3.
