Pampano Beach , FL-- Florida Fish and Wildlife officials have solved the mystery of the giant eyeball that washed ashore on a Florida beach last week.
They believe the orb belongs to Xiphias gladius, or more commonly, a Swordfish.
Researchers say, by examining size, structure, and bone surrounding the eye, they can say it was probably cut from the fish and discarded by fishermen.
Atlantic Ocean Swordfish can get as large as 1100 pounds and are usually caught off the coast of Florida.
Fish and Wildlife plan on doing genetic testing to ensure they are correct.
