    Do you have another specific tree to which the banyan is being compared? "Any" is a lot of trees to cover...

    As far as I can see, there are quite a few that are very like it. It's one of several "strangler figs" and there are other trees with this "strangler" habit.

    It is unusual but it's very far from unique.
