Not the first time
It’s not the first time otter sightings went viral. On Jan 12, 2021, Facebook page Myottermelon reminisced on the incident involving a male Zouk otter who crashed a wedding photoshoot in Singapore. He was spotted strolling along within the camera frame, carrying its pup by the neck.
“Exactly one year ago, Clueless Zouk Dad, while rushing back home with his pup, gave his blessings to this lucky couple when they were in the middle of their wedding photoshoot. Everyone was so delighted, and I was very fortunate to witness and capture this priceless moment,” the post read.
According to a mothership.sg report, otters in Singapore represent a rare occurrence of returned migration, population establishment, and eventual flourishing. No other native species in Singapore has done the same. Otters have thrived and became a Singapore icon, adapting to the big city life./TISG
