I came upon this seed pod (?) in Satsuma, FL in December, 2016. Could someone identify it for me?

That's the seed pod of a sago palm.

I agree, looks like it belongs to Sago Palm (Cycas revoluta) or maybe

It looks larger out of context. It's about 2 feet tall, and the eggs are the size of chicken eggs.
