Is this a centipede larva?
Hi-
My 7 year old bug lover son, found 2 of these centipede-like creatures the other day. We have looked online and can’t find it anywhere. Can you help us? We live in Santa Cruz County, CA if that helps locate the species. It is the bug in the middle.

Hi Kendra,
Your specimens look more like some species of millipede, but not a species we are able to identify.
