Python Basic Object-Oriented Python Welcome to OOP Creating a Panda Class

Need help with this question

Bummer: TypeError: init() missing 2 required positional arguments: 'name' and 'age'

panda.py
class Panda:
    species = 'Ailuropoda melanoleuca'
    food = 'bamboo'
    name= 'BaoBao'
    age= 10

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

panda_one = Panda('BaoBao', 10)

1 Answer

The challenge instructions indicate that the __init__ method should take a single argument, self, such as in panda_one = Panda(). Try removing the parameters name and age and the last two lines of the __init__ method.
