Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite the description, Astrocetus does not actively leave behind Ambergris, but rather on the rock, however, you may be able to obtain Ambergris from Astrocetus carcass though its unclear.
  • HLN-A describes Ambergris as Whale snot, however Ambergris is really sperm whale feces.
  • Ambergris can be stored in Refrigerators and Tek Troughs (as opposed to other foods only fed by other raise-only babies) expanding decay rate to just over 1 day according to official rates, can also be placed in normal Feeding Troughs.
  • Use an Ankylosaurus for increased Ambergris gathering efficiency.
