Mysterious Monster Eye

This softball-sized mysterious monster eye washed up on the shore in Pompano Beach, Florida this Wednesday. Although giant squid often have eyeballs this large or even larger, scientists aren’t sure what animal it belongs to.   Watch the video…

Deepseanews emailed professor of Biology Sönke Johnsen who is an expert on everything visual in marine organisms and he responded:

“I’m fairly sure it’s just the eye of a large scombrid, likely a swordfish or marlin. They get seriously big, but people don’t realize it because most of the eye is inside the head.”
