LEG (version 2)
Another way to indicate "leg" is to simply point at your leg or pat your leg. If you do the pat version, make sure you are not misunderstood to be using a version of the sign for DOG.

LEG (version 3)
Another way is to use flat hands ("B" hands) to show the leg.


Another way to refer to legs is to use what is known as a "classifier V" handshape to show what the legs are doing.
