REGINA – A Saskatchewan family has captured more slithering snakes in their home.

And some of the serpents are going to school.

The family collected 221 plains garter snakes in the fall that had wriggled in through foundation cracks on their old farm house outside Regina.

Megan Lawrence with the Salthaven West wildlife centre says the family recently brought in more serpents, bringing the total to 310.

She says 100 of the snakes are to be transported this week to the Saskatchewan Polytechnic campus in Prince Albert.

She says students will put the reptiles in hibernation for the winter and monitor them as part of a school project.
