Got a new baby Guinea pig but she’s alone. Is this bad?

She’s still a baby and can be lap trained given she’s comfortable and doesn’t run away when we’re around. But for the past week she runs away in her hut and hides. We’ve had her out and carried her and played with her for about an hour. Apparently she needs a second guinea pig to live?

    guinea pigs are very social animals and require company of the same species, so i would advise getting a second guinea pig. but the fact that you didn’t already know that makes me concerned, did you research guinea pigs before you got one? if not, it’s not to late to start on that!
