Head

head

In anatomy, the head of an animal is the rostral part (from anatomical position) that usually comprises the brain, eyes, ears, nose, and mouth (all of which aid in various sensory functions, such as sight, hearing, smell, and taste). Some very simple animals may not have a head, but many bilaterally symmetric forms do.

Neck

neck

The neck is the part of body connecting the head and the trunk found in humans and some animals.

Torso

torso

Torso is an anatomical term for the central part of the many animal bodies (including that of the human) from which extend the neck and limbs. It is sometimes referred to as the trunk. The torso includes the thorax and abdomen.

Arms

arms

The extended portion of the upper limb, from the shoulder to the wrist and sometimes including the hand.

Legs

legs

A leg is the part of an animal's body that supports the rest of the animal above the ground betwean the ankle and the hip and is used for locomotion. Connected to the foot.
