Python Object-Oriented Python (retired) Inheritance Override Inherited Methods

Step 3 of override inheritance not passing

step 3 of this challenge is to override the Animal.noise() method from the animal class with a new method. As per the previous video on the subject, redefing the method in the new class should do the trick. The code below gives back that task 1 is no longer passing. Changing the method to Sheep.noise() doesn't change the result.

sheep.py
from animal import Animal

class Sheep(Animal):
  sound = 'BAAH'

  def Animal.noise(self):
    return self.sound.upper()

step 1 define a class Sheep that inherits animal step 2 the sound of sheep should be someting step 3 change the way Animal.noise() works

You do want to define Sheep.noise() to override Animal.noise() but you don't need the "Sheep." part because you are already inside the Sheep class.

  def noise(self):
    return self.sound.upper()

thank you Seth
