Wot a of load a vomit.
,A man from Morecambe believes his dog has found a rare piece of whale vomit while walking on the beach.
He is now waiting to get the 3kg (7lb) piece tested and said he had been offered 50,000 euros (£43,000) for it by a French dealer.
Andrew Kitchener, principal curator of vertebrates at the National Museum of Scotland, said: "It's worth so much because of its particular properties.
"It's a very important base for perfumes and it's hard to find any artificial substitute for it.
"Over time it becomes a much sweeter smell as it oxidises, but initially it doesn't smell very nice."
'Ambergris is a substance secreted by sperm whales which is thought to protect against intestinal irritation caused by the beaks of their prey, squid and cuttlefish'
