function is a subclass

Why doesn't this code work?

class Sheep (Animal):
  sound = "Bahh"

  def noise(self, sound):
    return self.sound.upper()

You're so close! Because sound is already accessible it's not necessary to pass it into the function. If i remove sound from the definition of noise, the code passes.

from animal import Animal

class Sheep (Animal):
  sound = "Bahh"

  def noise(self):
    return self.sound.upper()`

Hope this helps!
