Perhaps the rarest of the large cats, the Maltese tiger was introduced to the island by Phoenician traders, possibly as early as the fifth century BC. It is not know whether they escaped from captivity or were intentionally released, but once feral they quickly adapted to their new surroundings, and in a few generations had evolved their distinctive blue coloration, allowing them to blend in with the island's peculiarly blue vegetation which is a result of the abundance of cobalt in the volcanic soil. Hunted to the brink of extinction in the late 1800's and early 20th century, only a few Maltese tigers remain in the wild, and their habitat is limited to the dense forests in the almost inaccessible highlands along the island's north coast. Most Maltese tigers today live in game preserves, the most notable of which is located in extreme western Texas, where the animals thrive, subsisting primarily upon the local fauna, especially mule deer, javalina, and jackalopes.

An explanation of why this type of tiger's coat looks bluish...

I don't understand why you've taken someone else's image and recoloured the tiger to make it appear blue. What's the point.
