Sneks

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: All specimens of SCP-XXXX are to be contained in a standard reptile containment unit. Any eggs produced by SCP-XXXX instances are to be moved to an incubation unit and monitored until they hatch. After hatching they are to be recorded and the current SCP-XXXX Research Team head is to determine their placement. Mobile Task Force Sigma-43 (“Snake eaters”) are to monitor zoos, reptile shows, and western Gambian environments for any instances of SCP-XXXX. All instances of SCP-XXXX are to be reported to Site-81 and collected for further research.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an anomalous species of snake physically similar to the Dasypeltis scabra (Common Egg Eater), with the only identifiable difference being their bright yellow coloration. After SCP-XXXX instances feed on fertilized eggs, they will regurgitate eggs (designated SCP-XXXX-A) which are genetically identical to the original instance. Instances of SCP-XXXX take approximately three to four days to reach adolescence. All SCP-XXXX instances have thus far produced no deification despite the amount they consume.

Addendum: All tests done were preformed with SCP-XXXX-A.
