People are flocking to take photographs of a big cat in India – which has facial markings which seem to spell out the word, ‘CAT’.

Astonishingly, it’s real, and wasn’t done with black marker.

The 14-year-old male tiger, named Munna, was born with black, letter-shaped markings on his forehead.

Every year thousands of photographers and tourists flock to see Munna at Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh, India.

Indian photographer Sarosh Lodhi has been lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the famous tiger on several occasions.

The 42-year-old, of Nagpur, central India, says: ‘I wasn’t sure if the markings were a myth until I saw Munna for myself, and I was amazed when I saw him.’

‘I’d never seen anything like it before.’

‘The last time that I spotted Munna he began to walk towards me which was simply amazing.

‘Now that he’s getting older, I can only hope that Munna refrains from fighting as much so that we can admire his beauty for a few more years to come.”

The luscious landscape and varied wildlife of Kanha National Park is famous for inspiring Rudyard Kipling’s classic The Jungle Book.
