Mystery Eyeball

This now-world-famous photo of the bigger-than-a-softball-sized eyeball photo was taken with Carli Segelson's cell phone. Carli was our Public Information Coordinator for our South Region. The hands holding the giant orb belong to part-time FWC staffer Lauren Connor.


Why was it such a mystery? Well… how often do you come across an eyeball on the beach, anyway? Uh – NEVER! So, we posted the eyeball to Facebook, and suddenly the eyeball was EVERYWHERE! In less than 24 hours, millions of people had heard of the find, from the United States to England and beyond.
