Otters pin down, attack man in Singapore

If those otters were the same size as these ones, the man would be dead.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_otter

 

" Males are between 1.5 and 1.7 m (4.9 and 5.6 ft) in length from head to tail and females between 1 and 1.5 m (3.3 and 4.9 ft). The animal's well-muscled tail can add a further 70 cm (28 in) to the total body length.[21][22] Early reports of skins and living animals suggested exceptionally large males of up to 2.4 m (7.9 ft); intensive hunting likely reduced the occurrence of such massive specimens. Weights are between 26 and 32 kg (57 and 71 lb) for males and 22 and 26 kg (49 and 57 lb) for females.["

Just now, 6of1_halfdozenofother said:

They like koi fish, eh?  I hear koi fish are considered invasive species in a lot of waterways and lakes.  Someone would make a killing if they did a North American tour with a family of otters... :bigblush:

My otters look way tougher than in the OP. Must be the good fishing in the bay,

 

I love them. 

The garage is detached so, I'm not bothered about the occasional fishy smell when they are having dinner. 

I talked to a wildlife person and they told me they don't poop where they eat and sleep, so I appreciate that. 

Also, most of my neighbours say they get the odd rat in their out buildings. Not me...the rats stay away from team bishop otter.
