[Tutor] Populating a list with object to be called by a class

  I dug out some old code from 5 years ago to clean up and get in working
order. It's a simple agent based model. I have class called Ant which
contains all the ant-like functions.

I have a list that tracks the ants but I did this is a very crude way. I
basically copied and pasted everything in there like this:

ants =




I couldn't figure out how to populate the list from a user input. Say if
the user wanted 50 Red and 50 Yellow ants. So it's hardcoded at 500 which
is not an elegant solution.

I went back to work on this over the past couple of days but still can't
figure out how to populate the list so I end up with Red_1 then Red_2 etc...

What would be a good python way to do this?

Thank you for your time.
