Woman meets sloth for first time, has adorable freak-out
"Oh, she's just so beautiful! Oh my goodness! Hi, precious!" That was just a small part of Catie Wayne's adorable reaction to meeting Buttercup the sloth. And while this may not be groundbreaking news, the video of their meeting is sure to brighten your day.
It was Catie's first time ever meeting a sloth, and she could not have been more excited. In between her squeals, Buttercup even reached out to Catie -- but to Catie's dismay, she couldn't reach back.
"When somebody touches them or tries to reach for them, they panic, but it's internal," explained Judy Avey-Arroyo, the Founder of the Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica (where Catie was visiting).
Despite not being able to touch Buttercup, Catie's love for sloths only grew during her encounter. In fact, she says, "If you guys can make it here to the Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica, please do, because it's really an absolute privilege to see these creatures in person."
