C has the most appropriate parallel structure (other arachinids and scorpions).
I am not sure about the 'as a mammal does' part though. Could someone please explain?

Can anyone explain why 'body' is correct instead of 'bodies'?

the plural used in the first fragment is nerve cells, which have to be on the body and not bodies. Hope this clarifies.

option C is the best fit.
