Gigantic Eyeball Found on Florida Beach

Beachcombing is a tougher job than it seems to be: First it was severed feet (still wearing sneakers!) washing up on beaches of Canada. Now it's a giant eyeball washing up on the Florida shore. Could this be something alien?

The blue and purple colored eyeball is large enough to fit into the cupped hands of the man who found it, who immediately called the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to see if they could identify it.

Marine scientist Heather Bracken-Grissom says, "Any time something weird and crazy washes up on the beach, it's definitely interesting."

In the Huffington Post, Christiana Lilly quotes FWC spokeswoman Carli Segelson as saying, "This is definitely an unusual situation, where an eye would be found independent of any other body part. It will probably take a little while to identify the eye."

But identify it, they did: It belongs to a deep sea squid.

I saw also on the news that they said they BELIEVED it was a swordfish eyeball, but they didn't sound certain. I don't think they know. But it is too weird that whatever it belongs to, how on earth did ONLY an eyeball wash up. Is that freaky or what!!!
