How can I add an instance attribute and the call it in the return of the method? I cant return 'Bao Bao' on this

How can I add an instance attribute and the call it in the return of the method? I can´t return 'Bao Bao' on this exercise thanks !

panda.py
class Panda:
    species = 'Ailuropoda melanoleuca'
    food = 'bamboo'
    name = 'Bao Bao'

    def __init__(self, name, age):
        self.is_hungry = True
        self.name = name
        self.age = age

    def eat(self):
        self.name = 'Bao Bao'
        self.is_hungry = False
        return f*'{self.name} eats {food}.'

The line return f*'{self.name} eats {food}.' should be return f'{self.name} eats {self.food}.'

You also might not want to set self.name to 'Bao Bao' in the eat method, since pandas shouldn't have to change their name in order to eat, and the panda's name was already set in the __init__ method.

Thanks !!
