CLOSED: What is this?? Caterpillar, centipede, robot??

Eugene, OR

Hi there! Recently this critter (in my dads words) "slithered across the floor" in our house, in Eugene Oregon. My dad managed to capture a photo of it before it disappeared somewhere in the house. It looks almost like a link of chains, metallic in a sense, but neither me nor my father have any idea what it is. A quick reverse image search suggest caterpillar, and my dad thinks it could be a centipede. But honestly I'm not even sure if it's a bug or not. Could you help identify it?

It's a larva of a snakefly; quite an interesting (and harmless) creature. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snakefly for an image of an adult snakefly.
