Meet Bay Farm’s Newest Stars: The Guinea Pigs

By Galilea Carapia

Have you noticed the newest members of the Bay Farm community? Their names are Charlie, Leah, Moligen, Princess, and Chewbacca! Many have noticed, a few haven’t. They aren’t your typical Bay Farm students. A bit more hairy, and small. That’s probably because they’re guinea pigs. And we got the awesome opportunity to interview them!

This reporter started off with a word with the handlers. The handlers are kids who take care of the guinea pigs.

Q: What is it like being a guinea pig handler?

A: “It’s cool and it takes a lot of focus.”

We then asked the guinea pigs a few questions.

Q: Do you like eating grass?

A: … ( Yes! )

Q: What do you think of our school?

A: … ( It’s awesome! )

Q: Do you like being carried?

A: … ( I do, as long as the kids do it carefully. )

We also had a few questions for the most well known guinea pig, Chewbacca!

Q: How’d you get your name?

A: … ( Well, I do look a lot like Chewbacca from Star Wars! )

Q: What’s your favorite food?

A: … ( Grass!)

We had fun interviewing the guinea pigs! Be sure to make our new “students” feel welcome!
