Survivors generally describe its head as “monstrous,” with some mentioning curved horns consistent with the original form of SCP-1179. Still others state that SCP-1179 has neither horns nor fangs, and its face is encircled by flames which reach down into a long beard of fire.
Eyewitnesses cannot agree whether or not it has wings.
This age is consistent with the geological age of this region.
SCP-1179 has since demonstrated the ability to change shape at will, and to become invisible and without form, appearing as a giant flying shade.
