Mysterious Purple Slime Balls

Are they alien eggs, fungal growths, or wet air freshener balls? Those are the questions being asked about thousands of purple balls that were found in the desert in Arizona outside of Tucson.

Geradine Vargas and her husband were out taking pictures when they spotted the out of place pool of balls. They shot images of them and sent them to a botanist friend who could not identify them. That’s when they contacted the local news channel to investigate.

“We checked out the mysterious spheres for ourselves, and learned they were still there,”¬†said Liz Kotalik from KGUN9. “They’re like gooey marbles that ooze out a water substance when squished.¬† They roll, they shine, and they’re out of this world.”

Here’s a close up image followed by the news report. What do you think they are?
