Recently, photos of an extremely rare golden tiger have gone viral on social media. Wildlife photographer Mayuresh Hendre spotted the majestic animal in Kaziranga, Assam, India.

Parveen Kaswan, an Indian Forest Officer shared the pictures of the golden tiger on Twitter, leaving netizens awestruck.

“Do you know in #India we have a Golden #Tiger also. The only documentation of such big cat in 21st century on the planet,” it reads.

Golden tigers are very rare. Few were spotted in zoos. But it’s the first time that they have seen one in the wild.

Regarding its golden fur and skin, scientists believe that it is caused by a recessive gene that gets expressed due to extensive inbreeding. This spectacular tiger also has red and brown stripes.
