Meet the 'hybrid goat-sheep' born in Scottsdale zoo
A hybrid baby goat-sheep; geep, named 'Butterfly' for her large black spot, has recently taken birth with the feet and face of a goat, but the wool and tail of a sheep.
Butterfly, whose mother was a sheep and whose father was a pygmy goat, was born at My Petting Zoo in Scottsdale, Metro.co.uk reported.
Priscilla Motola, the owner of the zoo, said that she and her children went to feed the animals, when her son found what he believed was a newborn goat, even though all the expecting female goats had already given birth.
She further added that then they found out that the sheep had just delivered.
Motola confessed that they didn't know that the sheep was pregnant, though they noticed her getting fat, which they thought was because of eating more.
