Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Protocols for long-term observation of potential SCP-XXXX targets are currently being developed, but due to the large number of candidates full monitoring is unfeasible at this time. Confirmed cases of SCP-XXXX are to be covered up as a home invasion or, in more severe cases, intentional vandalism caused by protest groups.

Up to two instances of SCP-XXXX-1 may be contained at Site-185 for study at the discretion of the Senior Researcher; all other instances are to be destroyed via incineration.

Description: SCP-XXXX describes a phenomena typified by the manifesation of between three and six Sarcosuchus imperator1, designated SCP-XXXX-1, inside privately owned properties that meet a specific set of criteria. SCP-XXXX-1 instances manifest in an agitated state; due to their large size this typically results in significant damage to the property.

Beyond their behaviour and anachronistic nature, SCP-XXXX-1 instances display no anomalous properties.

The following criteria have been identified as requirements for SCP-XXXX to occur:

  • The property must be sufficiently large as to accommodate at least three instances of SCP-XXXX-1, which average approximately 11m in length.
  • The owner of the property must own at least one other residence, and must not live in the target property full time.
  • No individuals employed by the owner of the property must be present within the property boundaries.
  • The owner of the property must be actively engaged in some form of tax avoidance or tax evasion.

No pattern to the timing of targeting of SCP-XXXX has been identified beyond these specific criteria, though events currently occur on average once every two months.

Following their manifestation, SCP-XXXX-1 will remain within the property for approximately 30 minutes, causing significant damage to both the contents and structure of the building before attempting to leave. In cases where the owners of the property are present at the time, SCP-XXXX-1 has been documented to actively attack and consume them. Once they have exited the property they will attempt to reach the nearest other building that meets the criteria of SCP-XXXX and will repeat this process. This will continue for between two and three hours, before SCP-XXXX-1 reverts to patterns of behaviour presumed to be typical of their species2.

Addendum 1
On 05/02/2018 Site-178 was evacuated following a containment breach involving SCP-████. Following the resolution of the breach, site personnel discovered five instances of SCP-XXXX-1 inside a Large Animal Containment Habitat. Security footage shows the instances manifesting in a flash of light, and then attempting to unsuccessfully escape the containment area a short while later.

The SCP-XXXX-1 instances have been kept for study.
