SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Here is something you don’t see every day.

Meet Butterfly, a half-goat, half-sheep hybrid.

The one-week-old “geep” was born at an Arizona petting zoo.

The sheep-goat hybrid is quite rare.  In this case, the petting zoo owners said they didn’t know their Ewe was pregnant.

The “geep” was named Butterfly because of her spots.
