How would you use the constructor to initialize the TongueLength field to the value passed in. I don't quite understand this question, can you please clarify this concept?

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
    class Frog
        readonly public int TongueLength;

        public Frog(int TongueLength)
           public int TongueLength = TongueLength;

You have the right basic idea.

But the field is already declared in the class itself, so in the constructor you will only assign it.

Also, you need to give your argument a different name from the field. By convention, the field name would start with a capital letter, but the argument name would start with a lower-case letter.
