I live in a condo in Toronto, Canada. For a few months now, I've been finding this bug on my bathroom floor. I only ever see one at a time, thankfully. But since it's completely foreign to me, I'm wondering if I should be freaking out about it.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

It's hard to tell but possibly a Silverfish?

Either that or a firebrat - definitely in the order Zygentoma/Thysanura - http://bugguide.net/node/view/79
