made the changes but i am still getting the same error

Bummer:: When I call the eat method, I don't get the correct message. Make sure to use the name attribute that is passed into the instance.

class Panda:
    species = 'Ailuropoda melanoleuca'
    food = 'bamboo'

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

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

Hey Allison Seim, a period (.) is needed at the end of the string returned from the eat method.
