PHOENIX, AZ — Adorable and adorably rare.
It’s not a lamb and it’s not a sheep — this animal is a baby geep — half goat, half sheep.
No, we’re not messing with you. This cutie’s name is Butterfly and she’s a pretty rare species — possibly the only gee” in the state of Arizona. Her mom is a sheep, while her dad is a pygmy goat.
The petting zoo owners didn’t even know the sheep was pregnant and the chances of a geep being a stillborn are high.
Only a week old, and she’s already making friends at the tiny petting zoo: zoo workers say her newest buddy is a horse!
