Rabbit Emojis

There are two rabbit emoji – rabbit and rabbit face.

Search for ‘rabbit’ to find both in the Windows Emoji Panel

Or the Mac Character Viewer

Remember that emoji look different, depending on the device displaying the email or document. The Windows and Apple versions of emoji often vary, compare above the cartoonish rabbit from Windows with the more life-like Mac rendering.

Emoji can be recolored to a single color only using the standard Font Color control.  This works in Word for Windows but not in our Word for Mac tests.
