creating a class

In this challenge, the word 'class' appears in blue instead of red. I think that's why my code doesn't work. Could someone please suggest what's going on here.

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

Hi Nicole,

When you create a class the first letter of the class name needs to be capitalized. Hope this helps.
