- "I well recall the time when, on a peculiarly perspicacious journey into the heart of the Fijian rainforest, while engaged in a legendary odyssey to rescue the Giant Fire Crab from extinction at the hands of unscrupulous wizard poachers, I had occasion to rest a while in the shade of a banyan tree."
- — Gilderoy Lockhart, Marauding with Monsters[src]
Newt Scamander rescued Frank, a Thunderbird, from wizard poachers trafficking him in Egypt and gave it a temporary home in his suitcase, hoping to release him back into his natural habitat in the wilds of Arizona.
Gilderoy Lockhart claimed that while in the heart of a Fijian rainforest, he had time to rest and hide from such wizards in a banyan tree on his mission to save Giant Fire Crabs from them. However given his dishonesty and fraudulence, this deed was presumably carried out by one of the more courageous and accomplished wizards from whom he stole credit of impressive-sounding adventures and various feats of bravery.
