Strange Animal Hybrids (The Toast of Botswana)

This goat-sheep hybrid is unusual because its two parents have different numbers of chromosomes. Sheep have 54 and goats have sixty. This guy manages to have fifty-seven, in what has to be an admirable compromise. It's resistant to sickness, and scientists are studying its parents to figure out how hybridization works, especially during pregnancy. Although goats and sheep often share the same spaces and interbreed, not many of the offspring are born alive. I'd love to see people actually toasting this. "Here's to you, Whatever You Are! Way to live!"

What do YOU think about this?
