By now you have surely heard of the giant eyeball found on the beach in Pompano Beach, Florida by a beachcomber. It is roughly the size of a baseball, maybe a little larger.
It has been sent to a Florida Fish And Wildlife research lab in St. Petersburg for a positive ID.
Many guesses have been tossed around as to the identity of the eye -- from a shark, whale, or squid. Personally I prefer to think that it might be the Flying Spaghetti Monster, because that would give us proof that he/it actually exists!
For some idea of size, one online source says that "A blue whale's eyes are about the size of a soccer ball, although other whale eyes are about the size of a grapefruit. A baby whale's eye is the size of an egg." As for sharks, their eyes can very a lot in size depending on species. So that gives us something to shoot for. This eye could be a whale's eye, but not that of a gigantic blue whale.
