A tiger who tried to cool himself by taking a mud bath remained half invisible.

The Bengal tiger covered half of its body in mud as it tried to find relief this month from the scorching 45C heat in India’s Tadoba National Park, Maharashtra.

While a tiger’s stripes usually help with camouflage, this cat seemingly made its back half disappear.

No two tigers have the exact same stripes and the Bengal variant can grow up to nine feet in length and weigh 500 pounds.

Bengal tigers are one of five surviving subspecies and are facing extinction due to deforestation and hunting.
