Excluding the word SPINE, can you give me 2 words which are part of the human body that also have one word anagrams that are part of the human body?

Again, please exclude SPINE.

No partial answers. No slangs, abbreviations.

One of the two I found was a 4 letter word. I am sure there are more?

    $\begingroup$ PINES are not part of the human body; they are a kind of tree. $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald May 13 at 13:14

    $\begingroup$ Yes, but SNIPE also isn't a part of the human body. $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald May 13 at 13:58

How about

ARSE and EARS

assuming British English is allowed.

  • $\begingroup$ I think the former is officially counted as slang, but realistically, its just part of british language so I think it should count :P $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil May 13 at 18:46

I've found another four-letter example to those already given

SPIT and PITS

A maybe rarer answer would be

CUSPID (canine tooth) -> CUPIDS (Short for Cupid's Bow, a double-curved upper lip)

and a more reliable; albeit informal answer:

GUMS -> MUGS (someone's face; informal)

Another one to add:

TORSO -> ROOTS (as in hair or teeth - hey if "FRINGE" counts, this is no less valid.)
