Gorilla emoji is the image of the huge ape of black color — much bigger than the one represented by 🐒 Monkey emoji. Despite many stereotypes, this ape predominantly eats herbs and fruit. Just like every other animal-related emoji, this one is often used in its direct meaning, especially in the context of the zoos, Africa, and tropical animals. As for indirect meanings, it may symbolize strength and a lack of intelligence.
Examples of using
“He is so huge and hairy – a real gorilla 🦍”
“We have seen gorillas only in the zoo 🦍”
