Perfect! Now we’re ready to start creating objects.

We can access attributes of our objects using dot notation. Here’s how it works:

class Square(object): def __init__(self): self.sides = 4 my_shape = Square() print my_shape.sides
  1. First we create a class named Square with an attribute sides.
  2. Outside the class definition, we create a new instance of Square named my_shape and access that attribute using my_shape.sides.



Outside the Animal class definition, create a variable named zebra and set it equal to Animal("Jeffrey").

Then print out zebra‘s name.
