Either Moby Dick is missing an eye (heaven forbid) or, more likely, the sea is still hiding many secrets from us. Experts continue to be puzzled by the giant, blue eyeball the size of a softball that washed ashore in Florida.
Luckily though they’re one step closer to finding out who it once belonged to, ABC News reports.
The eyeball popped up on Pompano Beach in Florida, with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission being immediately alerted as to its existence.
So far, they’ve ruled out the possibility that it was once attached to a giant squid.
“Because of bone around the eye, we can probably rule out a squid. It would be premature to guess [what else it could be]. Swordfish is one possibility, but we can't even say one hundred percent that it's a fish,” Carli Segelson, Commission spokesperson, says for ABC.
