THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS SPECIES:

Geep: Rare 'goat-sheep' born on Irish farm (BBC, 4 April 2014)

A rare, hybrid animal that is part goat and part sheep has been born on a farm in the Republic of Ireland.

The animal, referred to as a geep, was born about two weeks ago on Paddy Murphy's farm in County Kildare.

The unexpected arrival is thought to be the result of mating between a goat and one of the sheep farmer's Cheviot ewes.
