Challenge crashs : "Try again "

Something wrong in the code???

I see two issues:

  • you have your assignment operands reversed, as Rune observed
  • you don't want to instantiate a Frog object inside the class as you did on line 12

It's that second item that results in infinite recursion and causes the challenge to crash.

Thanks, Steven. Didn't observe that one - once again it shows that two pairs of eyes are better than one pair. ::-)

Hi, Hakim.

Just switch the variables length and TongueLength in your constructor, and it should work.

Remember that inside of the constructor of a class you will in most cases set the local variable of the class to the variable passed into the class constructor.
