According to an onlooker, the otters later made their way back to the riverside, which suggests that it could have been where they came from.

SINGAPORE: A family of 10 otters was spotted at the Central Business District in Singapore on Monday evening (May 17).

According to Mr Lionel Mattey, who was walking home from work, the otters were playing at Bayfront Avenue on the grass verge about 50 metres from the river, near The Float@Marina Bay.

“I thought it was a very nice thing to see bearing in mind it’s the CBD, during rush hour,” he said.

Mr Mattey added that curious onlookers also gathered around to take photos of them, including some bystanders at the top of the bridge.

The otters later made their way back to the riverside, which was likely where they came from, he said.

While this is Mr Mattey’s first encounter with the otters, otter spotting in Singapore has been more common in recent years. Most recently, an otter was almost hit by a car when it tried to cross the road at East Coast Park.
