Natural pretzel.

Deep in the rainforest at Natural Bridge, SE Queensland a strangler fig is gradually killing off its host tree. It takes many years for the strangler fig to fully take on the host tree, but it will eventually kill it. It is not uncommon for the host tree to rot (we have one in our local park) leaving the fig standing on its own and showing off the shape it has tangled it self into to strangle.
