C# C# Objects Methods Method Overloading

On my coding, line # 21 does exactly what the challenge is asking which is to return true if the length of the frog's ..

...tongue is equal or greater than the distance to the fly AND the speed of the frog is equal or less than the reaction time of the fly and this line is part of the method I created called "Eatfly" which accepts two integer parameters. So, what is the problem???

Frog.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Frog
    {
        public readonly int TongueLength;
        public readonly int ReactionTime;

        public Frog(int tongueLength, int reactionTime)
        {
            TongueLength = tongueLength;
            ReactionTime = reactionTime;
        }

        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly)
        {
            return TongueLength >= distanceToFly;
        }

        public bool Eatfly(int distanceToFly, int flyReactionTime)
        {
                return (TongueLength >= distanceToFly) && (ReactionTime <= flyReactionTime);
        }
    }
}

The calculation is fine, but it looks like you have a typo.

On line 19 you have "Eatfly" (with a lower-case "f') instead of "EatFly" (with a capital "F").

Thanks a million !! :)

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges { class Frog { public readonly int TongueLength; public readonly int ReactionTime;

    public Frog(int tongueLength, int reactionTime)

    {
        TongueLength = tongueLength;
        ReactionTime = reactionTime;

    }

    public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly, int flyReactionTime)
    {
        return (TongueLength >= distanceToFly) && (ReactionTime <= flyReactionTime);
    }
}

} // Cases are a problem be on the look out
