If oil is black gold…then what is whale puke? Booger green gold?
Months after a young boy stumbled across $60,000 nugget of whale upchuck, Ken Wilman is the latest prospector of whale vomit.
Well known for its use in top shelf perfumes, ambergris is long discarded by sperm whales and the large clumps of barf wash ashore.

So sweet…we're madly in love with this new family!
A bottlenose dolphin born with a deformity has been abandoned by his original group. The babe suffers from a deformed spine, and he could not keep up with his fellow dolphins.
The dolphin could have also been teased by the members of his original pod as well.
But, thankfully, sperm whales have come to the rescue!

And they definitely deserve it!
Earlier this week, two men were spotted riding a 40-foot sperm whale off the coast of Pompano beach.
But little did they know that the poor animal suffered an enormous amount of distress because of their CRAZY antics, and later died.
Unfortunately for them, they're now wanted men

What would you do if you saw a 40 foot long sperm whale trying to beach itself on a coast?
Well, two swimmers tried to ride the whale back out into the sea, and the whale died not too long after their efforts!!!

Sperm whale poop is almost worth its weight in gold, literally.
Not just the poop actually, it's a substance called ambergris.
Ambergris is a solid, waxy "gemstone."
It is a main ingredient in some of the finest perfumes in the world because of it's "earthy" tones.
