At London's Natural History Museum, this butterfly was born. It is half male, half female. Although rare, this has been known to happen in about 0.01% of butterflies.

"Though rare, gynandromorphy isn't unique to butterflies; individual crabs, lobsters, spiders and chickens have all been found with a mix of two sexes."
