Well.....that escalated quickly 🙈🥴!
Needless to say it’s been a bit of a surreal few days since the @bbcearth Unplugged Singapore film went out! And thank you SO much for all your messages! I have been FLAT out working but promise I will reply to them all!
This smooth coated otter was taken on location. We think it was a younger one as he was smaller than the others and kept nagging the others for food (they didn’t seem to impressed!)
The otters that now live in Singapore are thought to be a hybrid species between the small-clawed and full breed smooth-coat as in times when otter populations were so low they still had the need to well, you know, breed! More of a match of convenience as there were so few mates available!
But now this hybrid is doing pretty well (and their pretty big as well!). This one was so inquisitive about what we were up to and kept looking straight down the camera! They were absolutely magical! @bennberkeley #earthonlocation
