In Canadian folklore, Memphre is a long-necked lake monster that allegedly lives in Lake Memphremagog, Quebec, Canada. This "animal" is part of cryptozoology.

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]

Coin[edit]

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