Can you identify this eyeball?

A huge, softball-size eyeball has washed up on the shores of Pompano Beach, Fla., and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has sent it off for study to identify the mystery creature to which it belongs, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

All that's known about the orb, separated from its owner, is that it's big and it is blue, based on the Sentinel piece.

The commission has shared the photo on its Facebook page, where followers are suggesting everything from a giant squid to Bigfoot.

A man spotted the eyeball Wednesday and reported it to the commission, the Sentinel reports.

"He was walking along the beach and found it and thought it was something cool," Carli Segelson, commission spokeswoman, told the news organization.

Wildlife officers placed the eye on ice, the Sentinel reports.

It will be studied by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg, Fla., according to the news organization.
