The Maltese Tiger The unique Maltese Tiger is the rarest tiger in the world. It is also known as Blue Tiger and had been reported mostly from the Fujian Province of China. It is said to have bluish fur with dark grey stripes. The term Maltese comes from domestic cat terminology for blue fur and refers to the slate grey coloration. Most of the Maltese Tigers that have been reported belong to South Chinese subspecies. Existence of Blue Tigers has also been reported from Myanmar and South Korea.
Despite its name, the maned wolf is not a wolf at all, nor is it a fox, coyote, or dog. It is the only member of the Chrysocyon genus, making it a truly unique animal, not closely related to any other living canid. One hypothesis for this is that the maned wolf is the last surviving species of the Pleistocene Extinction, which wiped out all other large canids from the continent.
