It can, for instance, be used in combination with other cute animal emojis in conversations about pets and small animals, or to describe trips to the zoo, aquarium or beach. Because of the association between tortoises and slowness, the emoji is also used to describe something or someone as a slow or lazy. In certain contexts it can also be used to describe something as being really, really ancient.
