There's a small island off of the coast of Belize called Ambergris Caye. I wonder how THAT'S related. I don't think there are so many sperm whales in the Carribean.

It was named because large chunks of Ambergris wash on shore there.

:mad: Don't be mean to marine mammals other than in the seal and walrus family.

Dolphins, Porpii, Whales > 80% of Humans. Feed them Norweigans and Japanese. :mad:
