Maltese Tiger

The Maltese tiger is a cryptid tiger reported in the Fujijan Province of China. It is described to have blue fur with dark gray stripes. The markings are said to be strikingly beautiful. In 1910, an American missionary named Harry Caldwell claimed to have hunted a blue tiger outside of Fuzhou. He later chronicled his experience in his book Blue Tiger (1924). “The markings of the beast are strikingly beautiful. The ground colour is of a delicate shade of maltese, changing into light gray-blue on the underparts. The stripes are well defined and like those of the ordinary yellow tiger.—Caldwell, Chapman (1925)”
