Why am I getting an error instead of the else response?

if I enter an integer I get the response "thats a number" if I enter a string I get an error and not the response "thats not a number"

here is a screen shot of what I have. http://prntscr.com/msliuo

Try this:

name = raw_input("enter name: ")
number = raw_input("enter number: ")

if str.isdigit(number):
    print("thats a number")
else:
    print("thats not a number")``
