    Hi. I was cleaning up this evening and noticed these two, what appear to be cast under and on my mattress.... I am very stressed out right now and am hoping you can help me ID them. There is a large one and small one, links to pictures attached .

    Thank you in advance so much!

    Unfortunately, pictures uploaded to tumbler are not high quality and are small size. The more elongate creature looks like a lithobiomorph centipede. It's not quite in focus, but some characters point me in that direction. The small insect is more difficult to say. It's too bad you don't have a clear, dorsal view and a more macro picture. It doesn't look like a bed bug, but I can't really say what it is. None are cast/shed skins.
