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.
