Um, ✊✋✌️🦎🖖?

The Lizard is a hand sign where the tips of thumb and index finger touch and point sidewards. The other 3 fingers can either also touch the thumb tip (~ Bird) or are hold in parallel to the index finger (~ Snake, where the thumb may touch a lower phalanx). If at least the middle finger was raised a bit and bend to form an eye, it would become a Duck, Dog or Fox (with raised pinkie for an ear). We have then reached the gray area between Roshambo and shadow play.

Sadly, I can’t draw well enough to illustrate a respective emoji proposal myself (and I don’t care enough either to already have written up one without graphics).
