It Glows In Darkness

This #59 is also a souvenir. Onn bought this glow-in-the-dark fridge magnet during his trip to Tioman several years ago.

In the 1970s, TIME magazine selected Tioman as one of the world’s most beautiful islands.
Apart from its diverse marine life
, the inland rainforest area, encompassing approximately 12,383 hectaries, in Tioman is a strictly enforced nature reserve. There are several protected species of mamals on the island, including the Binturong. Long Tailed Macaque, Slow Loris and mousedeer from a total of 45 species of mammals and 138 species of birds, including the majestic frigatebird. Moreover, Tioman has species that are endemic to its shores. The soft-shelled turtle and the Tioman walking catfish are both unique and can be seen on rainforest walks.
