Newborn goat-sheep baby Butterfly

A few weeks ago geep Butterfly was born – a very rare baby with a sheep as a mother and a pygmy goat as a father. Apparently, the parents kept their relationship a secret, and the little geep was born very unexpectedly. Usually geeps are stillborn (sheep have 54 chromosomes while goats have 60), but this little Butterfly is doing very well! She was born at a petting zoo in Scottsdale, Arizona, and is getting a lot of attention, of course!
