Thought I'd share some interesting marine discoveries that have surfaced on the Internet over the past week.
Let's begin with the giant eyeball that washed up on the beach in Pompano Beach, Florida...just north of Ft. Lauderdale. While many speculated that it was from a squid, Dr. Sönke Johnsen a Professor of Biology at Duke University feels confident it is that of a blue marlin or swordfish according to DeepSeaNews.com.
Okay...so what about this next creature that washed up on the Medano Beach shores in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico? It's called an oarfish. This from Pete Thomas at GrindTV.com...
Oarfish are deep-water denizens that are rarely seen. But because of their long, slender appearance, and their bright-orange dorsal fins and manes, they helped spawn myths of sea serpents and sea monsters among ancient mariners.
They've been known to reach lengths of 30-plus feet.
And this photo from back in 2008...
So will you be going back in the water?
