Bummer: TypeError: __init__() missing 1 required positional argument: 'is_hungry'?

I have the instance attributes defined in this way: def init (self, is_hungry): self.is_hungry = True

But it gives a TypeError

panda.py
# insert your code here
class Panda:
    species = "Ailuropoda melanoleuca"
    food = "bamboo"

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

The instructions for task 2 say the method "should only take the self argument". But the method defined above also requires a second argument.
