Actually, they are the same. “嘴 (zuǐ)” is just the short form for “嘴巴 (zuǐba).”

Learning to speak Mandarin through photos is a fun way to remember new words. Also, I’d like to add some more body parts for this lesson.
“眉毛 (méimao) eyebrow”
“下巴 (xiàbā) chin”

When I learned to speak Mandarin, I was taught that “嘴 (zuǐ)” actually means “mouth,” so what’s the difference between “嘴巴 (zuǐba)” and “嘴 (zuǐ)?”
