What's wrong here?

This looks good to me - what do you think is wrong ?

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

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

    def eat(self):
        self.is_hungry = False

        return(f'{self.name} eats bamboo)

Panda = self.name("Bao Bao")

Hi Anthony!

Your last line definitely breaks the challenges - you don't need it.

This passes all three:

class Panda:
    species = 'Ailuropoda melanoleuca'
    food = 'bamboo'

    # task 1
    def __init__(self, name, age):
        self.name = name
        self.age = age
        self.is_hungry = True

    # task 2
    def eat(self):
        self.is_hungry = False
        return f'{self.name} eats {self.food}.'

    # task 3
    def check_if_hungry(self):
        if self.is_hungry == True:
            self.eat()

The main trick is to make sure you keep using self. for the internal variables and methods within the class.

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
