Memphre is a long-necked lake monster cryptid that allegedly lives in Lake Memphremagog, Quebec, Canada.

History[edit]

Memphre is often described as much like the Loch Ness Monster. While Memphre and most other lake monsters are disputed by many scientists, sightings persist and Memphre was last seen in 2005.[citation needed] It has been described as a whale or a plesiosaur-like animal,[citation needed] a description commonly brought up for other lake monsters.

Coin[edit]

In August 2011, an artistic impression of Memphre was featured on a coloured Canadian quarter.[1][2]
