I've got to agree with the people who say it is just polymer balls. You can get the in colors, they are the same size, and they would squish when
you squeeze them.
Heck, you can even get toy guns that shoot them, like paint balls, but smaller and less likely do damage whatever it hits. I got one for my grandson
which came with blue ammo. As to the thousands being there, that would be right, too given the size bunch found. It wouldn't be hard to get them
there because when dry, it would only represent about a handful of the stuff. It's amazing how much water these can hold and how long they can hold
My guess? Kids playing splat ball in the desert spilled some ammo.
Or someone stealing cactus and other desert plants.
And to answer the people who say that those wouldn't last in the desert, please notice the desert is green with plants. That would be enough
moisture to keep the balls hydrated. And every time it rains they will reappear.
The news desk person suggested my first impulse, because I have used several of those air freshner jars myself. I rejected that because the scent is
usually oily/sticky and would still be obvious.
