name attribute confusion

I'm confused on what how to get the name attribute in the returned f string to read 'Bao Bao'. Do I add a new name attribute? Changing the existing one doesn't seem to work either.

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

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

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

Hi there, Mat Clark! You're really close. To access the name attribute you need to use self.name. Remember, not every panda has the same name. You want the name of the panda you're referring to. And we do that by using self :smiley:

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
