I only know this because I have seen them before in the tropics, but this is probably Clathrus ruber (Wikipedia). So interesting!

EDIT: Also mentioned in these questions 1 and 2 so perhaps this will get marked as a duplicate.

  • $\begingroup$ Clathrus spp. is a good call but Clathrus crispus is common in Florida. Still an up-vote. $\endgroup$ – CKM Oct 22 '18 at 16:28
