    Ohhh when I lived in a really grotty student house last year I think I got one of these in my bedroom, it scuttled across really quickly but kind of stopped lifted its front half up and did some weird dancey thing then ran off! so quick!
    My friend said what it could be but i forgot! some kind of earwig I think... looks like a baby centipede by the pic though.

      I'm an OCD sufferer so I am hoping it isnt a sign of grotty-ness

        Looks like a millipede. Won't hurt you, not nice I suppose but when you think that some 1,000's of different insects share your living space it isn't surprising. I wouldn't worry about it.

          I agree with Pete - probably a black snake millipede if you want to be more specific. They like to live in damp places so your bathroom is probably ideal!

                  I used to be pretrified of spiders and most insects until I lived in Tanzania and had all sorts to deal with including tree spiders and getting ticks off the dogs!!

                  I now sort out removing spiders and such like when my DD screams!!

                  That looks fairly harmless, though when you are not used to it, it can be a bit yucky!

                        I know what the bugs are, I just can't remember what the name of them is.

                        I found that I got a couple of them in the bathroom where it was damp as they like living in damp places. Silver something I think. Right disgusting so I bleached everything and removed some dampness and now they have all gone

                              It might be worth looking under your bath to see if you have any rotten woodwork. Millipedes usually live in the rotten leaves etc outside. Having them in the house copuld indicate that you hae a problem with damp. Under the bath is notorious as water gets slopped there and the wood can be saturated without your knowing
