I dont see a constructor named ReactionTime... am i blind?

Im not sure what this is asking.

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

        public Frog(int tongueLength)
        {
            TongueLength = tongueLength;
        }

        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly)
        {
            return TongueLength >= distanceToFly;
        }
    }
}

The wording is a bit ambiguous. It is not asking you to add a parameter to a constructor called reactionTime, but rather to add a parameter called reactionTime to the constructor.

Constructors are always named the same as the class they are inside of, that is literally a part of the requirements of making a constructor. So the constructor is named Frog.

Basically it is just telling you to do the exact same thing that is currently being done with the TongueLength field. Add a parameter for ReactionTime to the Frog constructor, and assign it a value within the constructor.
