Can you see what I see? Or, can it see you?!  

Word that a giant eyeball washed up on a South Florida has created a buzz on the Internet and in the marine biology community.

An assistant biology professor at Florida International University in Miami on Friday said the blue eyeball may have come from a deep sea squid or a large swordfish. Heather Bracken-Grissom says she started discussing the eyeball with her colleagues as soon as they saw the pictures on the Internet.

A beach goer found it Wednesday in Pompano Beach.

Florida wildlife officials have sent it to a research facility in St. Petersburg for testing.
