What Exactly Is a Geep, You Ask? It Is The Fluffiest And Cutest Thing On Four Legs

We usually don’t come across a lot of hybrid animals. They are rare, but they are always fascinating and interesting to watch. The following video features one of these exceptional animals that took the internet by storm a while back.

Meet Butterfly – the geep. Now you might be wondering what a “geep” is. Trouble your minds no more because this video is going to show you. A female sheep somehow got loose and ended up breeding with a goat.


This doesn’t come as a surprise since sheep and goats are related. The surprise, however, came in the form of Butterfly. This tiny baby from a petting zoo in Arizona is a goat-sheep hybrid, aka “geep” or “shoat.”

Geeps share the characteristics of both of their parents. This rare species was first recorded in 2000. Butterfly has the face and feet of a goat, while her body is covered in a wool coat. Watch this unusual, albeit very cute, animal in the video below.
