Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX must be contained in a concrete chamber at all times. The ceiling must be made out of reinforced glass, walls must be made out of reinforced concrete. The floor of the containment chamber must be made out of sand and have the surrounding sides that are underground be surrounded by thick reinforced concrete. The walls of the containment chamber have air ventilation units in case of known gas leaks from SCP-XXXX. When a gas leak is detected guards equipped with gas masks will enter the chamber and retrieve any important personnel. If a gas leak is to occur while any D-class personnel is in the chamber they are to remain in the chamber for recording the effects of the gas on humans, there are no acceptations. When researchers are done recording the effects of the gas on D-personnel an automatic ventilation is activated and the gas is filtered and pumped back into SCP-XXXX's chamber.

SCP-XXXX is located on Site-███. If an individual wishes to enter SCP-XXXX's chamber they must be escorted by two armed guards. SCP-XXXX's containment chamber must be guarded 24/7 by two sets of 6-armed guard with a rotation of another 6 guards every 12 hours.

If researchers want to commence testing with/on SCP-XXXX they must receive authorization from the site manager. When approval for testing is authorized they can proceed with testing in only 3.5-hour intervals with 2-hour breaks in between for safety of SCP-XXXX (tests conducted on SCP-XXXX that lasted longer than 3.5 hours resulted in discoloration of SCP-XXXX as well as a distinct and strong miasma emanating from SCP-XXXX).

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 12m tall green cactus with a width of 8m wide. It has 4 "arms" or extensions that range from 4m to 4.5m in length with an average with of only 5m wide.

If an individual gets within 2m of SCP-XXXX, they may be injected with small glochids that SCP-XXXX can discharge from its "arms" and body, causing death or heart attacks within a 5 to 10-minute period. Other incidents include the individual being "grabbed" or "picked up" by SCP-XXXX (this action happens instantly and is unable to be captured by high-speed cameras and any other film capturing devices) and is battered against the chamber until the individual is killed. Another instance may occur when SCP-XXXX emits a gas that has a purple hue to it. There are several effects that the gas can cause with no consistency. Some of these effects include sudden death, cardiac arrest, lung and liver failure, severe panic attacks, self-mutilation and terminal cancer of the brain.

SCP-XXXX cannot be communicated with due to its lack of a mouth and it's lack of any vocal organs. Pictures of SCP-XXXX come out blurry and distorted (researchers are still not sure how this happens) so any documented pictures of SCP-XXXX must be hand drawn.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX was discovered on ██/██/2017 in the state of Texas when two hikers, Matthew ████ and James ████████, found several dead bodies (some of which were mutilated beyond recognition) surrounding SCP-XXXX. When police were called, MTF Theta-4 ("Gardeners") was then brought out to investigate. Both witnesses and police were administered Class A Amnestics after being questioned while MTF Theta-4 ("Gardeners") contained and transported the organism back to Site-███.
