Hey there, Keaton Crihfield! You're almost there, actually. The init and eat methods are not indented to be inside the Panda class. This means they are not recognized as part of the class but rather as standalone functions, which is not the intention. In Python, the indentation is crucial as it defines the structure and scope of code blocks, including classes and their methods.

I hope this helps!
