It’s a sheep. It’s a goat. It’s a… geep?

PHOENIX (CNN/KPNX) – Here’s something you don’t see every day!

It’s a geep – that is, a half goat, half sheep hybrid. The unexpected baby was born at an Arizona petting zoo.

Sheep-goat hybrids are quite rare. The animals don’t often mate. When they do, the offspring are usually stillborn.

In this case, the petting zoo owners didn’t even know their ewe was pregnant.

They’ve named the geep Butterfly because of her spots.
