Ed Sheeran Channels 'Salt Bae' While Feeding Crocodile

Move over, salt bae. Ed Sheeran can take it from here.   

During some free time while touring Down Under, the pop star took a trip to the famous Australia Zoo, which the late Steve Irwin spent his life working to make the best possible wildlife conservation facility.    

Sheeran became a crocodile hunter in his own way during his visit, feeding a massive saltwater crocodile. In a photo he posted on Instagram, the “Shape Of You” singer is seen sprinkling food to the snapping reptile, just as Nusret Gokce did in the viral 2017 photo.   

He even references the meme in the caption, writing, “Crocodile salt bae.” See the picture below.
