EatFly method test fails but same code works in Visual Studio

I don't understand why this isn't validating. I've tested the code in Visual Studio and it appears to work. See https://paste.ee/p/c8USS

Current error is if the frogs reaction time is faster it won't get the frog.

using System;

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
    class Frog
        public readonly int TongueLength;
        public readonly int ReactionTime;

        public Frog(int tongueLength, int reactionTime)
            TongueLength = tongueLength;
            ReactionTime = reactionTime;

        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly)
            return TongueLength >= distanceToFly;
        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly, int flyReactionTime)
            return TongueLength >= distanceToFly && ReactionTime >= flyReactionTime;

I understand now.

I misinterpreted ReactionTime and flyReactionTime as speeds. E.g. the higher the value, the faster.

That's why I went with ReactionTime >= flyReactionTime instead of ReactionTime <= flyReactionTime and why the error didn't make sense to me.

Makes sense now. Thanks James.
