Where does 🦎 - lizard emoji come from?

See Next Word

This representation of the squamate branch of reptiles (meaning, scaled reptiles, such as snakes and lizards) is green, but these creatures actually come in a rainbow of colors.

The lizard emoji is green though … and it’s also a quadrupedal lizard (meaning it has four legs) because a “legless lizard” (that’s a thing) would be confusing, and look a lot like a snake. A legless lizard is not a snake. It’s a legless lizard, with eyelids, openings for ears, and notched rather than forked tongues. Now you know a lot about lizards …

The lizard emoji was approved as part of Unicode 9.0 in 2016 and added to Emoji 3.0 in 2016.
