Description

Unknown items resembling bread buns found above high water mark. Heavier than similar looking one found earlier this year, but these might have been wetter as there was not much dry sand, it being springtide. After 4 days they dried out a bit, looked lighter in colour and weighed about 10% less.

Appearance: Oval shape. Uneven texture. Light beige in colour with browner marks. Does not feel waxy. Not soft/spongy / compressible like a bath sponge. Feels more like very dense bread when pressing down on it, not hard like a rock.

I sliced the flat one; A bit fibrous inside. Quite easy to start cutting but much denser inside and more difficult to cut even with a scalpel blade. Felt and sounded “crunchy”. No squid beak remains to be seen.

Smell : Distinctive but hard to describe. Definitely not a fishy or manure smell. Smells mossy or like damp undergrowth, not unpleasant. More overpowering when left in a closed place like a car or room.

People poll (they did not know what item was or where it came from) 1) Looks like a sea sponge. I can smell it, so it must be strong. Smells like the ground (soil) 2) Looks like a rock.Smells like it was found near the sea. Strong smell,not bad,actually smells nice 3) Lyk soos n braaibroodjie. Ruik baie sterk,soos swamp,muf 4) Looks like a rock.I can actually smell it! Earthy smell, like soil when it starts raining 5) Smells chalky 6) Looks like a potatoe, but smells like bread 7,8,9) Looks like a stale bun. Strong smell, but not stinky. Like bread going mouldy

Hot needle test for Ambergris: A hot needle placed on the surface of “bun” did not cause melting, neither did any molten substance leak out when hot needle was pressed onto it. A bit of white smoke was seen. Thus test was probably negative for Ambergris.
