Giant-eye mystery solved, Internet heaves a sigh of relief10/13/2012
Remember that mysterious, gigantic blue eyeball that washed up on a Florida beach Oct. 10 and captivated the ever-curious Internets? You know, the one that looked about as big as a softball? A biology professor at Duke University, Sönke Johnsen, may have solved the riddle about what type of creature the eye belonged to. In an email to a colleague, Johnsen wrote, "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." Mystery solved! Let's just hope we don't have any more nightmares about the massive (and massively creepy) thing. [Source]
