SCP-XXXX “Sand Cheetah”

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Areas of ammophila known to be inhabited by instances of SCP-XXXX are to be bought by foundation and fencing should be constructed around any bought area. This fencing should resemble any similar fencing in the area. Instances should be captured and placed in an unused cell fitting the instances dimensions.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an artificial species resembling Acinonyx jubatus hecki. It is composed entirely of artifacts found in the area surrounding it’s ammophila plant. Reported items include rocks, sand, gravel, shingles, pebbles, mollusc shells, coralline algae, and plastic items. It has only be found on Long Island, NJ, within a mile radius of an ammophila. SCP-XXXX instances are also notably smaller than the average Acinonyx jubatus hecki measuring between 50 to 70 cm and weighing between 11–52 kg.

Instances health, speed, and behaviour are directly tied to a corresponding ammophila. SCP-XXXX instance’s speed and direction are directly determined by the speed and direction of wind passing over its corresponding ammophila. SCP-XXXX is incapable of movement in the event its corresponding ammophila is placed in a vacuum. Testing has also revealed that they don't seem to require oxygen or any similar chemicals. Instances are capable of jumping up to 2 meters into the air though it rarely expresses this, unless it is “hunting” Laridae.

Should ammophila that it is tied to be threatened or even touched the SCP-XXXX entity will attempt to return to it’s ammophila under any means necessary. Should it reach it’s ammophila, it will then consume anything that has entered it’s ammophila. Should what has entered it’s ammophila have left, it will then attempt to find this offending item or creature. It has not displayed any anomialise means for finding the offender and will eventually stop trying to find the offender.
