Antics of female otter and her triplets caught on video at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park

SINGAPORE - The next time you are at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, try spotting these adorable SG50 babies - baby otters.

The National Parks Board (NParks) posted photos and links to videos of the three furry pups with their mother on Sunday.

"The otter couple at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park is now a family of five! The female otter recently retreated from frolicking in the river to give birth to SG50 triplets," NParks wrote.

The Facebook post has been shared more than 850 times since.

The parks and gardens authority also gave some tips for park visitors who encounter the otters, including not feeding them, or using flash photography.

"If you ever encounter the otters, observe them from a distance, stay quiet and avoid flash photography as we don't want to frighten them. Let's not feed the otters as well - they have plenty of fish from the river to feast on, which keeps the ecosystem healthy too."

Videos of the otters in action were posted on the Otters Watch @riverParkBishan Youtube channel last week.

The otters were born about two months ago, according to Otters Watch.

Wild otters have been spotted in Singapore before, including at Marina Bay, East Coast Park and Botanic Gardens.
