As it later turned out, this unique kind of tiger can be only found in the forest of Odisha and what’s the most important fact is that only 10 individuals of this species remain in the world. Unlike other tigers, this one has black stripes because he suffers from melanism.

According to some scientific studies, these incredibly wonderful creatures have only been sighted a few times and when the photographer observed him, he couldn’t believe his eyes that it was a tiger, as he didn’t even know about the existence of such kind of tigers.
