A beachcomber in the UK has his dog to thank for uncovering a piece of one of the rarest natural products on Earth.
Ambergris is an extremely valuable natural resource which is created in sperm whale intestines to protect their stomachs from its diet of beaked squid.
The find could be worth over $100,000, but some people may view it as a sick way to get rich quick.
It has been used for centuries as a fixative for expensive perfumes, as it traps aroma on the skin for long periods.
In 2011, Maori from a South Wairarapa marae found a 40kg chunk of whale ambergris, worth thousands of dollars, while burying the corpse of a stranded sperm whale that had been mutilated by vandals.
They intended to use the unexpected windfall to renovate their South Wairarapa marae and build new kitchens.
