My mom found this bug on her pillow. It’s long like a snake, but looks like a cross between a centipede and a millipede. The first picture shows it normal, the second picture we tried to flip it over to see the bottom of it. Please help.

Dear Barbie,
This is indeed a Centipede, and though we cannot be certain, it resembles members of the family Cryptopidae that are pictured on BugGuide.
