Buttercup is the most well-known sloth in the world. She has been on countless Animal Planet and Discovery Channel specials. She is a sloth legend. THE sloth legend. Also the current world's oldest known living sloth.


BuzzFeed was granted special access to the elusive sloth-teuse and we were able to get a rare insight into what it's like being the world's most famous sloth.

7:00 a.m.: Buttercup slowly comes to life. She awakens. Buttercup waits (kind of) patiently for her first delivery of leafy greens. She motions to the help.


8:05 a.m.: Buttercup suddenly awakes with a confused expression on her face. She overslept, again. Shit. Her adoring masses of loyal fans are coming soon.


And by showtime, she means just sit there and be a sloth. She compares herself to the likes of Kim Kardashian and Elizabeth Taylor. Her life is perfect parts glamour and exposé.


11:52 a.m.: She exfoliates her arms. Her arms are her signature body part. She compares them to J.Lo's "booty." "It's what people come to see, " she says.

12:22 p.m.: Buttercup takes a selfie for her many millions of Instagram followers. It's how she keeps in touch with her people. "Costa Rica can be so isolating, but I love it," she says.

10:00 p.m.: Buttercup yawns. She's out. Another successful day of slothing. When I asked her what keeps her going she goes on about her fans: "My fans. I do it for my fans."
