SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The newest addition to a Valley petting zoo is getting national attention.

It's an animal you've probably never seen or even heard of, but it sure is cute.
   
It's called a geep -- a cross between a goat and a sheep.

Butterfly was born at My Petting Zoo in Scottsdale about a week ago.

Her mom, Momma, is a sheep and her dad, Michael, is a pygmy goat.

Butterfly got the best of both of them -- goat hooves and a goat head, but she's covered in soft wool.
