Otters spotted at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park

The pair of otters that have made the Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park their home has new additions to their family. Three baby otters were spotted in public with their mum.

The National Parks Board (NParks) posted photos and links to videos on their Facebook page of three baby otters and their mother on April 19.

In less than a day, the post had been shared almost 900 times and liked by at least 2,500 people.

Those who had commented on NParks' Facebook post had only nice things to say about the otter family.

Many found the sighting to be "adorable" and "cute" and some commended NParks for allowing the otters to make Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park their home.

NParks also had words of advice for the public.

They said: "If you ever encounter the otters, observe them from a distance, stay quiet and avoid flash photography as we don't want to frighten them."

The public is also reminded not to feed the otters as they have "plenty of fish from the river to feast on", NParks said.

Videos of the otters in action can be watched on the Otters Watch @riverParkBshan YouTube channel.

In the latest video that was uploaded on April 17, Otters Watch managed to capture the whole family of otters in action.

Otters Watch said the triplets were born about two months ago.
