"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]

The Fijian rainforest is a tropical rainforest located in Fiji. It is the home of the Giant Fire Crab, which has been hunted near extinction.

In Marauding with Monsters, Gilderoy Lockhart conveys the tale of how he was confronted with a horde of Fire Crabs, while campaigning to save the Giant Fire Crab but stopping to perform "certain urgent ablutions" under a banyan tree.[1] The veracity of these events is doubtful, given Lockhart's theft of other people's achievements.
