Also, that Zebra emoji doesn’t have a body so it cannot gallop across the serengeti.

Moose emoji is worst!

I wish there were more pictures in the article for comparisons. It also doesn’t help that every platform has different looking emojis as they aren’t standardized at all beyond basic reference specifications.

I mean, just look at them.

Click the links, they’re referenced.

That’s just like, so much extra effort though.

Majestically. You don’t just “gallop across the Serengeti”, you gallop majestically across the Serengeti. It’s legally mandated, or something.

Right? In a NatGeo article about what some animals do or don’t look like? Like they don’t have a bazillion animal photos handy?

Also, emoji =/= emoticon, yeesh.

There should be an “I hate emojis” emoji.

I guess this article is cute and everything, but “it’s also dumb” is included under that umbrella.
