🦁
Lion

A friendly, cartoon-styled face of a lion—the large cat and king of the jungle—looking straight ahead. Depicted as a golden-yellow lion face with a light- or dark-brown mane, white muzzle, and neutral expression.

Often used with an affectionate tone. Does not have a full-bodied lion emoji counterpart. A lion is represented as ♌ Leo in the Western zodiac.

Available as an Apple Animoji.

Apple's lion previously featured a timid-looking expression.

Lion was approved as part of Unicode 8.0 in 2015 under the name “Lion Face” and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
