Region of origin: Cambridgeshire, England
A creature combining elements of disparate folklore such as the Black Dogs and undiscovered primates, the Shug Monkey is a spectral creature claimed to be roaming the hillsides and roads of Cambridgeshire. The Shug Monkey is a canine-like form but with ape- or monkey-like features and is said to alternate between walking on two legs or all-fours. It seems to appear and disappear as it pleases and afterwards witnesses describe their encounters as menacing but the Shug Monkey doesn’t seem to be particularly out to harm or hinder people.
