POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -

A giant eyeball washed up on a South Florida beach this week.

A person was walking on the beach in Pompano Beach on Wednesday when he saw the giant eyeball in the sand.

He called for help and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) responded to take a look.

FWC scientists took possession of the giant eye. They plan to preserve it and have taken it to their lab in St. Petersburg, where they will try to identify what animal it belongs to.

Since it was found on the beach, they believe it comes from a marine animal, possibly a fish.
