Not sure what the ask of the question is? I've produced the code in my own terminal, and it's showing the desired string

After redoing my code and testing it, it's showcasing the desired string output (exactly as asked by the exercise question). Even when omitting the test assertions myself, it is still not showing as correct on this challenge task's interpreter.

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"{self.name} eats {Panda.food}."

panda_one = Panda('Bao Bao', 33)
panda_one.eat()

Hey Neil Martin Orbase, try using self.food instead of “Panda.food” to access the instance attribute.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
