No, we're not messing with you. This cutie's name is Butterfly, and she's a pretty rare species and possibly the only "geep" in the state of Arizona. Her mom is a sheep, while her dad is a pygmy goat.

The petting zoo owners didn't even know the sheep was pregnant and the chances of a "geep" being a stillborn are high.

Only a week old, and she's already making friends at the tiny petting zoo -- and apparently, she's totally fearless. Petting zoo workers say her newest buddy is a horse.
