Special Containment Procedures: Samples of SCP-XXXX are to be kept in Site-125’s high-risk biological containment wing. Organisms and personnel suspected to have come into contact with SCP-XXXX are to be quarantined for a period lasting no fewer than 7 days or incinerated as the situation demands. SCP-XXXX colonies are to be destroyed using incendiary weapons and their surroundings treated with ionising radiation. Detection of SCP-XXXX may be performed by dousing surfaces suspected of being contaminated with unpasteurized milk or blood.

A colony of SCP-XXXX created by exposure to a thin film of blood.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a class of proteins which are capable of intersecting themselves, enabling them to take on extremely energetically favourable conformations. Furthermore, they are capable of transferring this property to other nearby proteins. In a lab environment, neighbouring instances of SCP-XXXX will bind to one another and form striated, fibrous structures. SCP-XXXX acts similarly to a prion and will, upon entering an animal’s body, replace their internal organs with a homogenous mass of further instances of SCP-XXXX, displacing any bodily fluids in the process. Infected animals retain all preexisting faculties but exhibit noticeably different behavioural patterns once the brain has been replaced by a corresponding mass of SCP-XXXX.

After the complete consumption of all internal organs, the infected animal will enter a dormant state and strands of SCP-XXXX will emerge from them, anchoring the mass to nearby hardpoints before eventually breaking apart the animal’s skin. At this point, the mass becomes a ‘colony’ of SCP-XXXX, a macroscopic quantity of SCP-XXXX which does not inhabit an animal’s body. Infection may occur via physical contact with a colony or via the entry of an infected animal’s tissues into an uninfected individual’s bloodstream or gastrointestinal tract.

Colonies of SCP-XXXX are white, sterile and fibrous, resembling spiderwebs. They are correspondingly lightweight and highly durable. Furthermore, SCP-XXXX fibres are capable of contracting and expanding, exerting force in a manner similar to animalian muscular tissue.

SCP-XXXX documentation is pending review by Dr Sayuri Kataigida in light of recent revelations.
