What do Teratomorph, as in a teratomorph creature, mean ? Google only give me more questions than answer.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

It appears to mean a creature having either extraneous or missing organs, or tumours composed of multiple types of tissue eg. hair, teeth, skin &c.

From the Google results I'd guess it was the SCP Wiki.

OED:
"terato-" = relating to monsters or abnormal form
"morph" = Biology: Each of several variant forms of an animal or plant.

It sounds like a very general term, rather than anything specific.

It is also a horror movie (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8467020/) and has been used by fans for elements of Magic: The Gathering (https://planeswalker.fandom.com/wiki/Teratomorph). It is also part of 3ed D&D Monster Manual 2 (https://forum.rpg.net/index.php?threads/lets-read-d-d-3-0-monster-manual-ii.835366/page-160) as a CR 16 Gargantuan Ooze with 28 HD, 324 hp, and AC 3

Even more likely . Feel a bit salty toward SCP to have use made up word as if it was a actual one.

Every word is a made-up word. Just ask Lewis Carroll about slithy toves (and whose name is also particularly made-up, though again, all names are made-up).

But from the other uses I found, SCP may not be the first to use "teratomorph". Any way, what is wrong with the SCP not being original or factual?
