SCP-PL-152 specimen held by ███ ██████, who thought he was holding his cat.

Item #: SCP-PL-152

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: All instances of SCP-PL-152 secured by the Foundation are currently located in Biological Site-█ in seperate terraria. Hired workers have to be examined every month as to their affection to the items. Instances are to be fed three adult mice per week.

Description: SCP-PL-152 is an as of yet unknown species of snake from the boidae family with green and brown marking. Instances of SCP-PL-152 species grow up to 1,5 m1 and weigh up to 3 kg. Just like other boidae species, SCP-PL-152 are not venomous and are carnivores. The objects' skeletons are much more flexible when compared to other boidae species, which allows the object to perform precise and quick maneuvers. SCP-PL-152 shows higher levels of intelligence than other snakes, being capable of operating simple handle mechanisms by laying on the doorknob.

SCP-PL-152 exerts an anomalous effect on all people in an estimated 8 meter radius, which is constant stimulation of all senses causing them to perceive them as a dog (Canis lupus familiaris) or a cat (Felis catus).2 SCP-PL-152 instances lead a lifestyle which strictly depends on humans. SCP-PL-152's yearly cycle begins in January or February, when instances are in proximity of human homes, attempting to be noticed. If they are taken home by a human, they will imitate the behaviour of an item that they are disguised as for about six months to the end of August. Most of the time in these situations these objects will function with humans in a relationship similar to a cat's or a dog's. SCP-PL-152's effects include all senses of prey; The item is capable of imitating sounds made by the faked animal and stimulating touch of the prey, so they think, that they touch relevant cat or dog. Sometimes food given to the Items by prey is enough to keep them alive. In some extreme cases of starvation, SCP-PL-152 instances devour other animals in their prey's house or go on night huntings for small rodents.

At the end of August, SCP-PL-152 will begin to measure their prey, by laying next to them. If their size is sufficient, SCP-PL-152 will eat their prey when it is alone. After half a month devouring of the prey, on September 13 exactly, all SCP-PL-152 instances will go to a dark, damp place, seeking a partner.3 After mating, female SCP-PL-152 instances will lay about 80 eggs4 in the neighbourhood of their last prey and for next two months will live in nearby forests, hiding from people. If there are no forests in the nearby area, items can choose plains, larger gardens or, in extreme cases, sewers. In December, they will begin seeking for a new host, ending the yearly cycle. SCP-PL-152 appears only in Polish territory in Polish, Russian and German territory. Currently Foundation has a goal of preventing the migration of SCP-PL-152 instances and catching them in the wild.
