A Yale-NUS college student had his day blessed with some zoological intervention — a family of otters running right past him.
Miguel Ochosa posted on Instagram on Tuesday (July 14) a clip of his chance encounter with six smooth-coated otters trotting across the National University of Singapore’s University Town campus grounds before disappearing into some shrubbery.
“Was honestly having a hecking stressful day…” he wrote as a caption to his video.
All that stress presumably dissipated, judging from his incredulous exclamations seeing the otter family dashing past him. “Excuse my voice-over and bad video panning but enjoy the cute otters,” he noted.
Though the cute critters have generally sparked joy for members of the public, they’ve been a source of displeasure for some owners of expensive pet fishes — especially the ones who have outdoor ponds where otters can dive into and have a wild feast.
