Item #: SCP-4250 Level 2/4250
Object Class: Euclid Classified

A solitary specimen of SCP-4250 sitting in the snow.

Special Containment Procedures: The entirety of Lake Baikal serves as the containment area of SCP-4250. SCP-4250 has a natural aversion to leaving Lake Baikal, so containment efforts primarily focus on disinformation and concealment of the anomaly. The Russian government has refused to allow a discreet depopulation program, so the Foundation is to avoid lethal interaction with SCP-4250.

MTF Lambda-21 ("Lake Monsters") is to monitor all known pods and are to tag pod leaders. Any reported gatherings of SCP-4250 are to be dispersed. Missing people statistics around Lake Baikal are to be monitored carefully for SCP-4250 involvement. Any newly observed abilities are to be reported immediately. If SCP-4250 succeeds in creating an Einstein-Rosen bridge, the area is to be cordoned off until the bridge closes and efforts are to be made in discovering the sister aperture.

Description: SCP-4250 is the collective designation of Pusa sibirica, also known as the Baikal Seal or the Nerpa. SCP-4250 is endemic to Lake Baikal, the oldest and deepest lake in the world. SCP-4250 is the smallest true seal and the only known freshwater seal. Adults are typically within 1.1 to 1.4 meters in size and are within 63 to 70 kg. SCP-4250 can live to approximately fifty years of age. SCP-4250's diet consists mostly of the golomyanka1 but has been known to also eat molluscs, sculpins and amphipods. There are between 80,000 and 100,000 SCP-4250 Instances.

SCP-4250 possesses the ability to manipulate and warp surrounding spacetime, as well as altering gravity. The ability manifests in various ways and the type of effect is directly proportional to the amount of SCP-4250 specimens in an area2. The ability is fueled by the specimens blubber3 reserves.

History: SCP-4250 was known for years, having been hunted by locals for years and scientifically identified by Johann Fredrich Gmelin in 1788. As Lake Baikal was a landlocked lake, it was unclear how SCP-4250 got to the lake. Civilian scientists theorized that SCP-4250 traveled through a glacial lake or plain, though had no conclusive evidence. In 1991, Foundation marine parabiologist Dr. Sarnai Seruuntungalag witnessed SCP-4250 creating an Einstein-Rosen bridge as part of a biological survey of the area. She gave SCP-4250 a provisional anomaly status and observed an SCP-4250 colony for 18 months. The report she filed cataloged the near entirety of SCP-4250's behavior and abilities as well as local history concerning. The report serves as the basis of SCP-4250 documentation and as the guidelines for containment. During her observations, Dr. Seruuntungalag submitted a theory of SCP-4250's Origin
