I'm stuck

I can get this to run in my editor using print. I am not sure what I am missing to pass the exercise. Thanks for the help.

# squared(5) would return 25
# squared("2") would return 4
# squared("tim") would return "timtimtim"

def squared(num):
        return (num ** 2)
    except (TypeError, NameError, ValueError):
        return str(num) * len(str(num))

Thanks Alexey. It was running fine in my editor and I figured that the exercise was wanting something particular. Really appreciate the help!!
