Python Basic Object-Oriented Python Welcome to OOP Adding to our Panda

Adding to panda question

So I have tried every iteration on the string. I am not a beginner to the idea of classes and methods.

However every single thing i do bounce back an error when adding the string Bao Bao eats bamboo. The name is not defined, yet when I define it it is sending back an error.

panda.py
class Panda:
    species = 'Ailuropoda melanoleuca'
    food = 'bamboo'


    def __init__(self, name, age):
        self.name = name
        self.age = age
        self.is_hungry = True

    def eat(self):

        self.is_hungry = False
        return

Hi Michael!

This passes all 3 tasks:

class Panda:
    species = 'Ailuropoda melanoleuca'
    food = 'bamboo'

    def __init__(self, name, age):
        self.name = name
        self.age = age
        self.is_hungry = True

    def eat(self):
        self.is_hungry = False
        return f"{self.name} eats {self.food}."

    def check_if_hungry(self):
        if self.is_hungry == True:
            self.eat()

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
