"Sorry, Marie... it's your turn to feed Chim."
"...Fine." the scientist took the tray and made her way to the room.
"CAUTION: DANGEROUS ANIMAL, AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL ONLY," a sign read on the windowless door. Marie had to type in a code to open it.
She didn't get far into the room before encountering parts of its inhabitant: a reptillian tail pooled on the floor; an avian wing outstretched on the wall; an insect-like limb attempting to keep the door open.
Almost bored with this routine, Marie kicked the spindly leg, prompting a deafening screech from the Chimera.
"...Is that for me?" From behind her, a canine head attached to a giant squid's tentacle spoke to her.
"Y-yes..." Still unsure of where to direct this response to, she looked at the floor.
I'm never going to get used to this job, she thought.
"Lovely. You can leave it wherever."
Marie decided to give it to a nearby pair of talons, which eagerly took the plate and retreated to their hungry host.
Her stomach dropped when she turned to see another wing covering the exit.
"This was a nice snack and all... but I need a main course too." A human mouth on the wall licked its lips.
Before she could scream, a clawed hand reached out and covered her mouth.
"I'm kidding, I'm kidding... just go."
She got her cardio of the day by running out of there.
"Not taking chances, huh?" The Chimera's voice(s) followed her out of the room.
