The Bishan otter family paid a human being a surprise visit along the Singapore River on March 15 during one of their outings.

Booped man

While passing by Singapore River, two younger otters noticed a man lying motionlessly by the river.

After getting a green light from the adults, they decided to go closer to check on him.

*Sniffing his feet* Hmmm he is probably just taking a nap.

“Okay kiddos, don’t kaypoh let’s go!”

The otters made their grand exit as the people nearby noticed their sudden appearance and swarmed over with phones/ cameras:

The man didn’t appear to even notice he had been booped by so many otters at one time.

While getting surrounded by 15 otters might seem like a blessing/ daunting, it is not surprising as otters are a bunch of curious animals.

Furthermore, as you can from the video, they do not linger long as they would rather continue with their otter outing.

Here’s the full video:
