Selma is a lake monster said to live in the lake Seljordsvatnet in Seljord, Telemark, Norway. According to most who have seen the supposed creature, Selma closely resembles other reported lake monsters, such as Nessie, Champ, and Ogopogo. The first eyewitness accounts date back to the 18th century.

The Swedish explorer and cryptozoologist Jan Ove Sundberg has been trying to capture Selma for a number of years, but has not succeeded. Selma was possibly recorded in video by a Norwegian girl, who was visiting the lake with her parents. Locals think the video looks reliable, and the phenomenon is real.

Selma has been depicted in the coat of arms of Seljord since 1989.
