Well, it’s that time of year. In the honor of the season, I’ll be highlighting some freaky stories about cryptozoology and alaskan folklore. Recently, the interwebs have exploded with the discovery of a large eyeball off the coast of Flordia. It’s likely a giant squid or swordfish, but many theories have popped up along the net. What you think it is?



The mystery over a massive eyeball discovered on the Florida coast continues.

Scientists now seem to disagree over whether the mysterious eyeball belongs to a massive swordfish or a giant squid.

The eyeball, discovered by a Florida beachcomber, has left scientists around the region stunned and puzzled over its origins. The plate-size eyeball is in near pristine condition and remains under study by the state’s agency tasked with studying such specimen.

While the story seemed ripe for conspiracy theories, in a statement released through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Facebook page, the commission confirmed the story, saying the eyeball is currently under study.
