Having succumbed to touristy pressure by paying Flower Dome at Gardens By The Bay a visit in mid-November, a family of five otters have decided to pop by The [email protected] Bay on Nov. 27.

A video, courtesy of contributor Animal Lover, shows them squeaking and grovelling on carpet grass:

The SG Heart Map Festival @ Flat was launched just the night before on Nov. 26.

The four-day SG Heart Map Festival, a light, art and sound showcase, is part of the celebrations to mark Singapore's 50th birhday.


The human-friendly otters, believed to belong to one family of five, have been seen wandering around Singapore, such as St Andrew's Junior College, Gardens By The Bay and Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, where they have made their home.

Guess this more than qualifies them for the role of ambassadors for the 8-km Jubilee Walk trail that tries to locate the Singapore narrative in physical space as SG50 celebrations wind down.
