A dog walker and his dog have stumbled upon a six lb lump of smelly whale poop in Morecambe, Lancashire, that could be worth £100,000 or approximately $158,000, according to the Mirror.
The Mirror reports that Ken Wilman didn’t know the value of the stinky yellow rock until a little bit of online research revealed that the substance was ambergris, an ingredient used in the manufacture of perfume. A French dealer reportedly offered Wilman £43,000 for the sperm whale feces but experts contend that the ambergris could be worth a lot more.
