A video of a family of otters taking a dip in a condominium's swimming pool circulated on social media recently.
The video was originally taken by a resident, G.byun, and was then posted to Reddit and several Facebook pages like
These otters are, as some have described, "high-SES" ones.
Instead of playing around in Singapore's waterways, they've chosen to frolic in the waters of a private condominium.
The short 24-second clip showed the six furry creatures gambolling and splashing around in the water, which was later revealed by commenters to be the swimming pool at Park Infinia, located near Newton.
If you take a closer look at the video, one of them even appears to be snacking on what appears to be a bright orange koi fish.
This is what relaxation looks like.

According to The Straits Times, the curious sight took place on Mar. 8.
This isn't the first time otters have entered urban premises.
In 2019, six otters feasted on and beheaded pet koi fishes specially reared over many years.
In this latest incident though, the koi fish had reportedly been brought into the pool from elsewhere.
