A giant eyeball washed up on the shores of Pompano Beach, Fla. on Wednesday, sparking a mystery that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWC) is rushing to solve. Not much is known about it other than the fact that is it big and blue.

The giant eyeball was found by Pompano Beach resident Gino Covacci, who took the eye and put it in a plastic bag. He called the police, who transferred him to the Flordia Fish and Wildlife Commission. No one could immediately say what species the eyeball came from.

"It was very, very fresh," Covacci told the Orlando Sentinel. "It was still bleeding when I put it in the plastic bag."

The FFWC posted a photo on its Facebook page, and people began taking shots at solving the giant eyeball mystery. Some people suggested an octopus, while others suggested Bigfoot. Still others had other suggestions.

"My ex-wife she seemed to see everything," Carl Wayne, from Casleton, Ind., wrote on the page.

The eyeball will be sent to St. Petersburg, Fla. to be studied.
