Portuguese Vocabulary: Interesting Names of Body Parts in Brazilian Portuguese

The other day, someone I know was talking about their head, more specifically, their scalp, and I realized off the top of my head (…get it?) I didn't know the word for it in Portuguese. For lack of actually knowing it, I made up the word escalpo (which is actually correct, scientifically-speaking). The popular name, however, is couro cabeludo, or rather "hairy leather". Why it would be called that is a bit of a head scratcher, but I suppose it's more or less understandable.
