When This Mama Sheep Got Loose, She Created An Animal I’ve Never Seen Before

4132

What happens when a mama sheep gets loose and mates with a daddy goat? It makes sense, goats and sheep share a lot of commonalities…but what happens if the two try to mate? Well, one petting zoo in Arizona has the answer to that question. Meet Butterfly, the geep.

Geeps, also known as shoats, are goat-sheep hybrids. First documented in 2000, the geep shares traits of both parents. Butterfly specifically has goat feet and a goat face, but also has a wool coat like a sheep. This rare species is sure to be a great attraction for the petting zoo.
