What is the #HeardingCats photo challenge in Forza Horizon 5?

The #HeardingCats photo challenge is the latest challenge for the current Summer/Wet Season in Forza Horizon 5. This challenge tasks drivers to locate a mural and, through Photo Mode, take a picture of the mural with any Jaguar car.

As a Jaguar car is one of the challenge's prerequisites, drivers can use any Jaguar currently in their garage or acquire one via the Autoshow, Auction Houses or Wheelspins/Super Wheelpins. Once they have acquired a Jaguar, go to the "cars" tab and select "Change Car" to have selected their car before heading out to complete the challenge.

How to complete the #HeardingCats photo challenge?

The lion mural by street artist Farid Rueda is in Playa Azul, a town to the far east of the map, alongside the coast of Riviera Maya. This town is the exact location of The Goliath race event, north of the mural.

Drivers will need to travel into town to locate the mural by taking the eastside road in Playa Azul. Look for a blue and green painted house on the left side of the road where the mural is spotted. Ensure that your camera is panned to your left to avoid driving past the mural.

Once they have found the brightly-coloured mural, park your Jaguar in front of the mural and take a picture to complete the photo challenge.
