Why do I get AssertionError?

class Panda:
    species = 'Ailuropoda melanoleuca'
    food = 'bamboo'
    name = "Bao Bao"

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

While the code is technically acceptable as is, the challenge checking mechanism apparently wants to see a space between the keyword "return" and the expression for the value to be passed back.

You may want to report this to Support, it might get you a "special Exterminator badge". :beetle:
