Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Specimen(s) must be contained in a lead box with interior space of 3 cm x 3 cm x 3 cm. Boxes any smaller result in the specimen disappearing and reappearing in the vicinity of the container. Larger boxes tend to allow the specimen to reproduce within the container. Offspring do not show the same properties. The lead must be 40 cm thick to prevent radiation from leaking (See Description & Addendum).

Description: The object is similar to the Conocybe filaris in terms of appearance. It has a scent that seems to attract all matters of organic species towards it, it also has sharp needles resembling that of a cactus. which contain a neurotoxin, [REDACTED]. Organic species in a 3-meter radius tend to suffer excessive vomiting and headaches (as long as the specimen is not contained or behind lead) which fade almost instantaneously as the distance between the specimen and the organic species increases. Physical contact with the specimen leads to the appearance of cuts on the appendages that have been in contact with it.

Different species of mice have been brought close to the specimen with the same reaction. However, the Shrew was able to maintain physical contact without any adverse effects.

The specimen was discovered when two American tourists were reported missing after travelling to Manaus. The local police discovered their dead bodies surrounded by vomit and blood.One of the bodies was covered in cuts similar to what the specimen produces when it is touched. The other body had cuts from the right forearm to the stomach. Both bodies had been drained of their blood indicating that no blood clots had been formed.

Addendum: The excessive vomiting and the headaches are common symptoms of some forms of radiation treatment. Radiation tests conducted on mice that were exposed to the specimen shows that there were no recurring issues and all vital signs lay within the normal range. However, when the specimen was checked for leaking radiation, it was found that it was emitting strong gamma radiation. An abnormality is seen such that any radiated gamma particles seem to be trapped in a 3-meter radius from the specimen, and the moment an object were to exit this 3-meter radius, there were no lingering effects of the radiation or any proof that it had been subject to gamma radiation.
