Your boyfriend and my boyfriend and our best friend Taylor Swift's boyfriend visited the Sydney zoo while attending the Eras tour concert and for some reason, listening to Travis Kelce describe what zoo animals he met pretty much tracks with exactly how you'd think Travis Kelce would describe zoo animals he met.

Travis told told his brother, Jason Kelce, in Wednesday’s episode of their “New Heights” podcast all about his Sydney zoo adventure and it's just like being there.

Why are these brothers so forever hilarious? This whole episode is worth a listen but because this is PetHelpful, ya know, I will just focus on the animal aspects of it.

First Travis talked about helicopters following him and Taylor and then clarified, “Well, not us, Taylor,” he clarified, adding, “This is all because Taylor is the biggest and the best thing possible.”

Absolutely true!

Then he said that the kangaroos were pretty sweet and he got to see a Red Panda up close and personal, which he compared to a friendly raccon.

“One of my favorite things is the zookeeper, the one showing us the red panda, we had to go in a cage just to go in and see the panda in, like, the panda area, and they’re like, ‘All right, make sure that door’s closed, and when you get outta here quickly, close this one because they are escape artists,’ and I was like, ‘This thing just got so many brownie points from me, dude!'”

Travis also saw a crocodile! Which he said was "way bigger than an alligator."

And to quote“I saw a crocodile, which is f–king way bigger than an alligator,” he said before adding, “Thank God” they are not prominent in the United States.

Travis also saw a lion!

Saw a lion close up. Dude, when you hear that [roar] — ‘cause I had Taylor take a picture — it just was like, ‘Oh my gosh.’ Let alone one, you see three of them run down from their rock, their perch, knowing they’re about to get fed … you see how fast and agile that thing is, dude, it’s over.”

His brother added, "I’m not messing with cats, it doesn’t matter what size," Jason said, and Travis replied "You could tell one was the big bad, I was just like, 'Damn, that’s a bad man right there.' “

Travis said being in the same pen with a rhino was terrifying.

Jason asked how Travis couldn't lead with the fact that he petted a rhino and right? That's very important information right there!

“That thing had just got done running around in mud, like me petting it was like me putting my hand on a plaster wall … dude, that thing was rock solid.”

"Dude, those things are majestic, man,” he said. “You could tell how heavy that thing is and how it could just f--- you up.”

This should be the entire marketing campaign for the Sydney Zoo, just Travis Kelce describing meeting the different animals. He's just hilariously enthusiastic which is why we all adore him.
