Optically speaking you are probably right, but a prime fixed at 500mm or 300mm... while fine for small birds or general wildlife that stays in the distance... isn't a lot of use for big wildlife that isn't afraid to walk up to you. Zooms have their uses too.

If a hungry lion walks right up to you, you can take its picture with your phone.

I don’t take my phone out with me. There’s no reception out there anyway
