Whale Vomit Found on Dog Walk Worth £100,000

17 posts in this topic

A man whose dog found a lump of rare and valuable whale sick on a beach is expecting to be able to sell it for more than £100,000.

Ken Wilman, 50, was out walking on Morecambe beach when his dog Madge started sniffing a lump of rock.

He told Sky News: "At first I thought it was a football but as I got closer I realised it was a big stone.

LMAO I just read the story. He found it where my friend lives. I'll have to tell her to be on the look out for more whale barf as she could make a nice bit of change.

Whale vomit is also known as ambergris and is used to make perfume. It is formed in the digestive system of sperm whales and has a very strong and unpleasant aroma.

Yep, I have spelt some of these perfumes on the tube...arggghhh.

Anyway, I`m off to the beach with my rubber gloves, dog and bucket.....hopefully I can send you all a postcard in a few days time. :w00t:

No, but I can always bung it in the freezer for a few hours, will that increase the price?

Are you looking to buy? :w00t:

Well it's much cheaper.

It's going for a song at an auction for third world countries.

Updated thread...

You've updated the thread with a different news story.

Not the same man, not the same beach, not the same lump of whale vomit.

Just to clarify this is the guy in the OP -

A dog walker who thought he had struck gold for two years after finding a large lump of smelly whale vomit has been told it is just a worthless rock.
