Hi Bob. Welcome to the Ranch! You need to actually ask a question if you want us to help you effectively, though. What specifically do you need help with?

at the very least, it looks like your inputAnimals method isn't closed...I think someone got a little trigger happy when commenting out stuff. The brace on line 35 needs to be uncommented (I think).

I think you are dealing with too much code all at once. You should write, maybe, five lines only before compiling and running whatever code you have. That way you find errors much more quickly.
You should also, I think, write write some of your } backwards. As you will see from the link, “backwards” means you write lines in a different order from what you usually do.

FIVE? IMHO, that is still way too many. I never go more than 2-3.

That’s six lines, and still does nothing much.

You have four lines each containing only { or }, so you ain’t going to get very far with three lines

But Fred and I agree that you must write little bits of code and make sure they work before going on to the next bit.

hmmm....maybe I don't really count "lines" of code. i would consider this to be one:

since technically, it can be written on one line:

and yes, so could your original six lines:

but that's just silly.

I guess I don't count braces as 'lines of code' since they can be written in so many different ways.

I think your line arithmetic and mine will result in our both writing the same amount of code at a time
