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.
In Search of Memphré
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.
