Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Marine folklore tells tales of menacing creatures hiding beneath ocean waves, but such mysteries are not limited to the open sea. Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster, British Columbia’s Ogopogo and Quebec’s Memphré suggest numerous inland lakes hold similar secrets.

Lake Memphremagog is located about 150 km (93 mi) southeast of Montreal; a long, narrow lake that runs north-south across the border into Vermont. First Nations legends from the area speak of mysterious monsters lurking in the lake. Official records begun in 1816 reveal as many as eight sightings every year; the majority of them confirmed by numerous, independent eyewitness accounts.

The descriptions of Memphré are so similar to those of Ogopogo and Nessie that scientists have speculated they are members of an animal species that hasn’t been discovered—yet. Will you brave the waters to find out?
