Poppy lives with his mom, Anna Terry, on her family’s truffle farm near Deloraine in Tasmania, Australia. He’s a sniffing dog in training, but he’s already made a huge discovery.
“Poppy just started digging and didn’t stop, then I started to see how big it was,” Anna told ABC News. “It’s the biggest truffle we’ve ever had here.”
Weighing in at 910 grams, the truffle was nearly double the size of a truffle considered large in size. This valued the truffle at around $1,500.
But due to the recent COVID-19 restrictions, it would’ve been difficult to sell as demand just wasn’t there. So Anna cut it up adding that “it will probably all end up in my tummy.”
But what a find by Poppy! 🙂
