raccoon 🦝

There’s just something so adorable about the Raccoon emoji that gets you smiling. The raccoon is a grey-faced animal with white and black patterns on it. Their cheeks are sharp-looking and they have lovable small black hands.

Raccoon dogs, also known as tanuki by the Japanese, are a popular type of exotic pet. They’re not as aggressive as other exotic animals and are fluffy to boot. However, it is considered illegal to own a raccoon dog as they are considered to be wild animals. If you do somehow happen to live in a country that legalizes ownership of raccoons, you may use the emoji to symbolize your fur buddy.

Other uses of the raccoon emoji can be for slang terms with negative meanings such as stealing, snooping, or burglary. This is because some raccoons are considered pests in other suburban areas. However, placing the raccoon with the Wastebasket emoji means that you just had an encounter with a raccoon that tried to make a mess of your outdoor trash bin!

Raccoons aren’t only known for negative things as well. Regardless of the negative undertones of the raccoon, it is still a beautiful creature that learned to adapt and thrive in an urbanized area. Seeing a Red Panda, which is actually a raccoon, symbolizes good luck. That’s why some Japanese may use the emoji to symbolize good luck and spotting the adorable but endangered Red Panda.

🦝 Raccoon is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 11.0 which was introduced in 2018.
