The Shug Monkey is a cryptid reported from the area of Cambridgeshire between the villages of Balsham and West Wratting. Folklorists and investigators of the supernatural classify it as closely related to British hellhounds such as Barghestand Black Shuck, more distantly related to werewolves and the woodwose. Cryptozoologists classify it as either a cryptid canine or as a cousin of Bigfoot. The myth is thought to have originated from Norse settlers. It has features of a dog and monkey. The head and general body build resemble a humanoid more than a canine, but the feet are like a dog and allegedly leave gigantic dog tracks. The stance is usually quadrupedal. Sometimes it is supposed to fade away like a ghost orapparition.
