Oil is Thicker Than Blood

Special Containment Procedures: to-do

Description: SCP-XXX refers to four passenger elevator cabs, henceforth designated SCP-XXX-1 through -4, each measuring 2m x 2.5m x 2.2m. SCP-XXX were originally located in the elevator shafts at the Amsterdam office of Iapetus Energy plc, an Oil and Gas multinational company. SCP-XXX displayed no anomalous features between their installation, 04/11/1994, and 01/05/2012.

SCP-XXX appear non-anomalous from the exterior, and will function as normal if installed within an elevator system. Anomalous features become apparent when the interior cab door opens. Elevator doors will only open when the associated elevator call button is used, and will close after 60 seconds. All attempts to open the doors by force, or breach the exterior of the cab, have been unsuccessful.

All SCP-XXX instances are entirely filled with water. With the exception of SCP-XXX-1, the interior walls are not visible, and the interior dimensions anomalously extend beyond the confines of the cab. With the exception of SCP-XXX-3, the boundary between the cab interiors and exteriors are impermeable - all attempts to enter the cab, or extract samples from within, are hindered by an unknown force.

  • SCP-XXX-1: Contains a Lion's mane jellyfish with an estimated bell diameter of 1.7m; tentacle length cannot be estimated due to being longer than the cab's height. Entity floats in the centre of the cab for the duration doors are open for. Cab walls and flooring appear heavily water damaged.
  • SCP-XXX-2: Contains 5 Sea Turtles and 1 bottlenose dolphin. Entities swim freely around the anomalous exterior.
  • SCP-XXX-3: Contains a shoal of piranahas. SCP-XXX-3's boundary is permeable one-way, from the interior to exterior. When opened, SCP-XXX-3's contents will flow from the interior outwards, until the cab door shuts after 60 seconds. The door closure occurs despite the water pressure. Analysis of water ejected has matched mineral content to freshwater rivers in South America. To date, the highest amount of piranahas to be ejected from SCP-XXX-3 is 52,751.
  • SCP-XXX-4: Contains Dirck van den Berg, Iapetus Energy's Head of Operations in EMEA, and a tiger shark. Upon the cab doors opening, van den Berg is conscious, aware of his situation, and in a state of distress. In all testing, the tiger shark has grabbed van den Berg by the mid-rift and proceeded to maul him. In 73% of testing, van den Berg has still been conscious when the doors have closed. When the call button is used again, the interior has reset, and van den Berg is uninjured, and will proceed to be mauled by the tiger shark again.

One containing birds?
