The Harry Potter Canon

Like the Diricawl, the Tebo can become invisible at will. It is an ash-coloured, warthog-like creature native to central Africa. The creature’s hide is highly sought after for clothing and protective shielding. (FB)



The tebo's similarity to members of the pig family (and warthogs in particular) may affect how it is viewed in the magical world. "Hog" as a naming convention and a motif is conspicuously present at Hogwarts (a name suggestive of warthogs) and in Hogsmeade. At the same time, pigs are regarded as particularly unmagical (pure blood families often makes efforts to distance themselves from pigs for this reason) because they are so hard to charm (Pm).
