Well, it’s about time! It may not have taken 66-million years (which is when dinosaurs vanished from the Earth), but a lot of people were long anticipating the arrival of this emoji. There were forums and web pages devoted to it, and even the Natural History Museum in London got on board with an internet-wideย  “Sauropod Emoji Campaign.” People complained about too many chickens and a plethora of train emoji. “Why no dinosaurs?” they cried.

The sauropod was finally approvedย as part ofย Unicode 10.0ย in 2017 and added toย Emoji 5.0ย in 2017, which is when the T-rex emoji also appeared. Across platforms, the sauropod appears mostly blue or green and is full-bodied except for Facebook’s version, which features the head only.

Sometimes you just have to wait for nice things.

Who uses ๐Ÿฆ•ย - sauropod emoji ?

Dinosaur fans were flat-out elated when the sauropod emoji appeared.

However, the word dinosaur can sometimes imply a negative, and the emoji can be used to relate to a person or thing (a business or tradition, for example) that is out of step with the current times or about to become obsolete.

It can also be used to refer to something outrageously large.

Now that we have the emoji, people can also use it to embarrass their pets.

It’s great for promoting all things dinosaurs …

and for promoting other “necessary emoji” campaigns!
