MIAMI - It's not that body parts never wash ashore on Florida beaches. But usually it's not an eye the size of a softball.

State wildlife officials are trying to determine the species of a blue eyeball found by Gino Covacci Wednesday at Pompano Beach, north of Fort Lauderdale.

"He was walking along the beach and found it and thought it looked like something cool," Carli Segelson, spokeswoman for the commission, told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel Thursday.

They put the eyeball on ice so it can be analyzed at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg.

Agency spokeswoman Carli Segelson says the eyeball likely came from a marine animal, since it was found on a beach. Possible candidates include a giant squid, a whale or some type of large fish.
