Bishan otters gatecrash National Day prep at Marina Bay floating platform

That's harmonious human-wildlife coexistence right there.

We all know that the rapidly-growing Bishan otter family are regular visitors to the Marina Bay floating platform.

And true to form, they were found frolicking there again this month by faithful otter chronicler Fast Snail, in a video posted on May 17.

On this particular occasion, the family’s latest documented visit happened to coincide with the beginnings of preparation on the floating platform for National Day this year.

And even though there weren’t any inflatable animals to jump on, it’s clear they still had a blast hanging out by themselves — even when some of the workers on site stopped briefly to watch them at some points.

2. Nua
3. Catch up with friends

There was one slightly nerve-wrecking moment for the family, though, when one of them got stuck in a net on the platform while it was trying to leave to join the others:

It was eventually able to squeeze through the hole of the net and reunite with the rest in the water, though. Phew.
