Item #: SCP-XXXX (Hell Platypus)
Object Class: Safe Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a standard Containment Cell under continual remote survellience. SCP-XXXX is to be fed meat products from either primate or suidae animals only with approval from a researcher with Level-4 access or higher. Any personel entering the cell of SCP-XXXX must be examined for signs of injury penetrating the skin, nosebleeds, and ovulation before being granted access. Technology and SCPs that manipulate electric fields or create electric discharges are only to be used in the presence of SCP-XXXX with approval from a researcher with Level-3 access or higher. When violent, SCP-XXXX is to be subdued using a minimum of doses of the standard transquilizer. Chemical bases are not to come into direct contact with the waste products of SCP-XXXX without a fire containment team on standby.
Description: SCP-XXXX is a biological SCP that weighs approximately 225 kg and stands at 1.8 meters while knuckle-walking, with a full height of 2.4 meters. The SCP's prehensile tail is 1.5 meters in length, including the curved 30cm blade at the tip. At the base of neck, a tattoo of the MC&D logo has been identified, alongside the numbers 002. Despite the implications, no other lifeforms of SCP-XXXX's species have been used by Marshall, Carter, and Dark against the Foundation.
SCP-XXXX is primarily reptilian in appearance, with thickly layered scales pigmented in mixed shades of gray and brown covering most of the body, with thicker concentrations on the head and back. The limbs, however, have coarse gray fur starting at the elbow on the arms and the knee on the legs, extending down to the remainder of each limb. The legs are digitigrade, with canid feet bearing 8 cm claws, and have exceptionally thick muscles due to scaling differences between SCP-XXXX and mundane canines. The forelimbs are similar in shape to those of an adult male gorilla, save that the thumbs are opposible and all digits bear claws, with the 3 cm thumb claws being roughly half the length of the finger claws. SCP-XXXX's facial structure is similar to that of a shark, with a snout that leads with the nasal passages and two rows of fangs. Unlike most predators, the eyes are wide-set, extending the available field of vision to 220 degrees.
SCP-XXXX is largely docile, but testing and observation have confirmed that it has numerous stimuli which can provoke high levels of aggression. When provoked, SCP-XXXX lashes out at any animal life that it can detect until it is subdued or has exhausted itself. Stimuli known to provoke this aggressive state are the scent of human blood, the consumption of human tissue or that of animals that taste similarly, and electric discharges exceeding _. Analysis suggests that the electric discharges are detected using the tail blade, using a sensory organ similar to a platypus bill in function. While hypothetically possible, no method of controlling what SCP-XXXX attacks or when the aggressive state ends has been identified, although it has been observed to prioritize targets based on the ammount of external blood on their body.
SCP-XXXX was initially acquired during a raid on a reported Marshall, Carter, & Dark safehouse. The target of the raid was later determined to have been a trap due to SCP-XXXX being the only anomalous entity in the building, coupled with the specimen defending the facility alongside mercenaries with conventional firearms. Mobile Task Force Pi-1 ("City Slickers") suffered █ casualties between SCP-XXXX and the mercenaries, but all hostiles were either subdued or terminated. As no mercenaries survived, no other personel were found on-site, and no witnesses were located in the area surrounding the facility, no amnesiacs were administered. Investigation into the source of the leak that facilitated the ambush is ongoing.
