Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-1 is to be contained in a 1m x 1m x 1m steel container with industry-grade fans installed on each wall. The fans are to be controlled by a monitoring system, which observes SCP-XXXX-1 via two cameras located in the top corners of the container. The system is to power the fans in a way that SCP-XXXX-1 never collides with any of the walls of the container or the cameras.
Description: SCP-XXXX consists of two components: a tumbleweed, specifically of the kali tragus species (SCP-XXXX-1) and variable quantities of sand composed primarily of quartz grains (SCP-XXXX-2).
SCP-XXXX-1 is a yellow-grey colour, and measures 17.4 centimetres in diameter. Upon collisions, SCP-XXXX-1 produces a small clump of SCP-XXXX-2, roughly 90 grams in mass. SCP-XXXX-1 is in a constant state of movement; it naturally maintains a speed of 1.6 kilometres per hour. Furthermore, when SCP-XXXX-1 comes into prolonged contact with SCP-XXXX-2 (typically due to SCP-XXXX-1 filling its containment with enough SCP-XXXX-2 to contain its movement), the sand begins to rise in temperature. This temperature increase spreads throughout SCP-XXXX-2, and has been observed at temperatures exceeding 1800 degrees Celsius. SCP-XXXX-2 will cool via regular thermodynamic processes until it is the same temperature as the surrounding air shortly after being separated from SCP-XXXX-1.
SCP-XXXX-1 was discovered at Site A-91U3, after an abnormal amount of expansion occurred in the area, observed through mandatory geographical log examination over a period of several years. Examination of the site revealed giant sand dunes, completely uninhabited by fauna or flora. Eventually, SCP-XXXX-1 was discovered, and subsequently transported to its current containment with miminal complications.
