What do you get when you cross a goat with a sheep? The answer, of course, is a geep and theres one in Arizona whos melting hearts across the internet.
Butterfly, whose mother was a sheep and whose father was a pygmy goat, was born last Sunday at My Petting Zoo in Scottsdale much to the surprise of the owner.
Priscilla Motola said she and her three children went to feed the animals on Sunday evening when her son found what he believed was a newborn goat, even thought all the female goats expecting had already given birth.
Butterflys mother is a sheep and father is a pygmy goat (Picture My Petting Zoo/Facebook) Thats when we looked at the mama sheep and saw she had just delivered, Motola said.
We were not aware that she was even pregnant. We noticed she got a little bigger, but we thought she was just eating more.
Butterfly, named for her large black spots, has the feet and face of a goat but the wool and tail of a sheep.
And shes already causing quite a fuss on social media.
The zoo is currently closed due to the hot weather, but Montola thinks Butterfly will be a hit with visitors when it reopens in the autumn.
Shes just a baby. We just want to give her some time, she said. I just never expected something like this to happen.

Wonder what it tastes like.
Looks like a goat to me.
What do you get if you cross a Muslim and a goat? A musloat or a goslim?
I think she’s adorable.
MMMM. Dinner roasted over an open fire. With flour tortillas, green chili and salt. Marvelous!
But who’s her daddy?
Im gonna go out on a limb and say POTUS
So she’s a bastard geep, she’s still adorable.
Like chicken, of course...
Cute little animal, not all that ba-ba- ba- bad. My guess is, like the Mule and most other hybrids, she will be sterile. Or does that rule only apply to male hybrids?
Name it: FAJITA
Both goat and sheep are delicious; I’d try it.
That is the cutest thing!
Parabiosis...Animals should know better ¿
God created animals “after their kind.” Today it’s sheep mixed with goats. Tomorrow it will be men mixed with I don’t want to think about what.
Danger Will Robinson! Danger!
I think it's called an "I-kill-ewe".
As if LGBT doesn’t have enough letters...
The chupacabras are going to have a field day with these!
I love goats. When I was young we lived out in the country and my dad was always dragging some sick or baby animal in that he bought at the auction really cheap. One time it was a newborn goat. We raised him on the bottle in the house til we could throw him outside with the dogs. Big mistake. After awhile he thought he was a dog. Was the funniest thing you’d ever seen. Could walk to the back door and call the dogs, look around and you could see Billy jumping through the fields coming home.....following the dogs.
We had another snow white female goat that loved strawberry soda. My dad had a friend that before he came over he’d stop and get one, drink most of it, and before he ever came in the house would go to Snowball’s pen and tilt the bottle up to her mouth and let her drink what was left. I swear she got happy feet and smiled after.
I love goats! Lol
The doesn’t work to cross a muslim with goats, ask them trying it for years!
Absolutely adorable! All you folks suggesting she be eaten—shut the heck up! You are really disgusting.
Nice story. Thanks.
Somebody must have put him up to it.
Better than this union:
Man+beer+pig = 0bama...
