The T-Rex emoji was approved in 2017 under Unicode 10.0. Its appearance varies across platforms, with Apple and Google featuring a green T-Rex, Samsung a red one, and Twitter a brown one. Facebook, meanwhile, displays just the open-mouthed head of the dinosaur, yellow-eyed and yellow-toothed.

People really wanted the T-Rex emoji too. It was long sought after and people didn’t know what to do without it:

Since its debut, the T-Rex emoji has spiked when dinosaurs have made popular news (e.g., upon the release of a new Jurassic Park LEGO set announced in 2018 in conjunction with the Jurassic World films).

Who uses 🦖 - t-rex emoji ?

In most cases, the T-Rex emoji is used literally in social-media posts and online articles that have to do with dinosaurs. Museums and science centers use the emoji to share updates and pictures of dinosaur-themed exhibits, along with brands and fans spreading news about the Jurassic Park movies.

Users also incorporate the T-Rex emoji when discussing dinosaurs metaphorically (e.g., I feel like a dinosaur when I turn on the radio and don’t know any of the new songs 🦖).

While many use the T-Rex emoji to specifically denote that dinosaur, the emoji can also be used to emphasize or supplement content dealing with dinosaurs more generally. The T-Rex emoji can appear velociraptor-like on some platforms, so users may draw on the T-Rex emoji when discussing Raptor-named sports teams (i.e., NBA’s Toronto Raptors).

On social media, some people incorporate the T-Rex emoji into their handles and bios as a whimsical way to express their personality or nostalgic love of dinosaurs when growing up.
