Ambergris is a resource in the Genesis: Part 1 DLC obtained rarely from mining green-lined rocks in the lunar biome. It is used as ammunition to charge the Astrocetus's bomb attack, and as Food and comfort food for baby Magmasaurs (or force fed to adults to replenish 300 Health).

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite the description, Astrocetus does not actively leave behind Ambergris.
  • HLN-A describes Ambergris as "whale snot", yet Ambergris is really sperm whale feces.
  • Ambergris can be stored in Feeding Troughs, Refrigerators and Tek Troughs (as opposed to other baby-raising Foods) expanding its decay rate.
  • Using an Ankylosaurus increases Ambergris harvesting efficiency.
