PHOENIX — It’s a kid (of the goat variety). Wait, it’s a lamb. Actually, she’s both.
Butterfly, part goat, part sheep, aka geep, was born at My Petting Zoo in Cave Creek last week. She’s a rarity in the animal kingdom, said a zoo spokeswoman.
Meet butterfly our hybrid goat/sheep. Born today between 3pm and 6pm. Per my understanding she is the only one… http://t.co/QY07xlKwmH

Little Butterfly has been getting a lot of attention online and in the media.
The reservation-only farm is closed for the summer but mobile zoo services are available.
