Memphré (or Memphre©) is a reptile-like lake monster that is said to live in the murky Lake Memphremagog that borders Québec in Canada and the state of Vermont in the United States of America.


[edit] History

Memphré is often described as much like the Loch Ness Monster with an American twist. While Memphré and most other lake monsters are disputed by scientists and much of the general public, many sightings persist and Memphré was last reported seen in 2005.

Memphré has been described as a whale or a sauropterygian-like animal, a description commonly brought up for other lake monsters.

Lake Memphremagog is often the site of quarterly and annual meetings of the International Society of Cryptozoological Researchers.

In August 2011, an artistic impression of Memphré was featured on a colored Canadian quarter.

[edit] In Search of Memphré

There is a cross-border international 26-mile marathon swimming race in Lake Memphremagog called In Search of Memphré.

[edit] Loch Ness Monster and Memphre

The Loch Ness Monster in Scotland and Memphre in Lake Memphremagog may be holders of common DNA. If further investigation by the open water swimming prove to be true, then the open water world will have formally share its findings with the International Society of Cryptozoological Researchers and The Science of Cryptids.
