The Maltese tiger, or blue tiger, is also a very rare gene mutation that results in odd colored fur on a big cat. The fur is said to have a bluish tint with dark grey stripes. Blue tigers are extremely rare because they’re hunted and harvested because people think they have special healing powers. In 1960, a blue tiger was born into the Oklahoma Zoo, leading researchers to believe the blue coloring is an extremely rare gene mutation.LaurieAnn
