Tembos are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Their thickset bodies rest on stocky legs, and they have concave backs. Their large ears enable heat loss. The upper lip and nose form a trunk. The trunk acts as a fifth limb, a sound amplifier, and an important method of touch. Tembos' trunks end in two opposing lips.
