Is this a centipede carcass?

This is not an image of a carcass. It is a Centipede Exuvia, the cast off exoskeleton that remains when an arthropod molts.
Thank you for your prompt response, Daniel. I found the centipede exoskeleton at the library where I work. I understand that centipedes prey on other insects, so having a few around might be an advantage, although their appearance might freak out a few of our patrons.
