Tell us what’s happening:
I was wondering is the whole point of this exercise in the practical world; how to work with methods? Why don’t we see a constructor like the following? It won’t even let me even put a this.name = name in the new syntax. Is the new Object.creat() a replacement for that pattern? I must be missing something.

function Tree(name) {
  this.name = name;
}

Your code so far


function Animal() { }

Animal.prototype = {
  constructor: Animal,
  eat: function() {
    console.log("nom nom nom");
  }
};

function Dog() { }

// Add your code below this line
Dog.prototype = Object.create(Animal.prototype);

let beagle = new Dog();
beagle.eat();  // Should print "nom nom nom"
