Description: SCP-001a, AKA the Biotech Virus, uses microscopic pieces of metal to make it's colonies on. Colonies
consist of 1,000-46,000 members. These tiny creatures incase themselfs in metal atoms to become tank like, and over
many years they have evolved to a status where they have integrated circutry into themselfs, using old circut-
boards in rubbish-dumps in India. Soon after, it engulphed the medium town of Phooytoelte. The UN worked to
contain it, however these microscopic colonies still float about in the air. One has been known to take over
a scientest, who became zombie like controlled by the colony's queen.
