"TongueLength" (capital "T") is the name of the field stored in the object, and that's the one you want to compare with.

But "tongueLength" (lower-case "t") is a parameter of the constructor, and the other methods don't have access to it. In fact, once construction is complete, it doesn't exist anymore.
