Item #: SCP - TORT
Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP - TORT is to be contained within a sealed habitat designed to resemble wetlands. For observational purposes, a series of cameras with infra red filters are installed upon the corners of the habitat. Whenever it is necessary to conduct maintenance for any purpose, all lighting must be turned off within and immediately outside the habit. The maintenance crew will be provided with infrared visors so they can safely work in the dark.
Description SCP - TORT is a reptilian organism physically resembling a Galápagos tortoise (Chelonoidis Nigra). It measures approximately 1.5 metres high and 3 metres from snout to tail. At last weighing, it was approximately 1500 kilograms, and its highest recorded walking speed is 0.25 km per hour.
For the duration of any period of time wherein SCP - TORT observes any living subject, it will cease all voluntary motion until such time that SCP - TORT is no longer observing it. Those under the effect show signs of reflexive movement such as breathing, blinking or sweating. SCP- TORT will invariably use this ability to its advantage to approach, kill and consume any living being that it encounters.
