A limb (from the Old English lim), or extremity, is a jointed, or prehensile, appendage of the human or other animal body. In the human body, the arms and the legs are commonly called the upper limbs and lower limbs respectively, to include part of the shoulder and hip girdles. Arms and legs are connected to torso or trunk. Many animals use limbs for locomotion, such as walking, running, or climbing. Some animals can use their forelimbs (which are homologous to arms in humans) to carry and manipulate objects. Some animals can also use hind limbs for manipulation.
