Centipede or Silverfish

Barry's Bay, Canada

How do you determine the difference between a young (does not yet have all its long legs) Centipede and Silverfish. Are there any other insects that look the same? Thanks

Silverfish - like all true insects, - have no more than six true legs, and only on their thorax. Centipedes have at least eight legs at any stage of development, with each body segment bearing one pair of legs.
