18. DRY Penguins


I passed the exercise but the console displays only { }....shouldnt it display "Hi my name is...."?

function Animal(name, numLegs) {
    this.name = name;
    this.numLegs = numLegs;
Animal.prototype.sayName = function() {
    console.log("Hi my name is " + this.name);

function Penguin(name) {
    this.name = name;
    this.numLegs = 2;

Penguin.prototype = new Animal();
