Apex Integration Services module instructions

On this module, specifically on the Apex Rest Callout unit, I feel like this following challenge instruction could be misleading.

    •    The 'getAnimalNameById' method must call https://th-apex-http-callout.herokuapp.com/animals/:id, using the ID passed into the method. The method returns the value of the 'name' property (i.e., the animal name).

If someone physically copies that link, removes id but leaves in : then the challenge review will not pass because the request link will post as 
https://th-apex-http-callout.herokuapp.com/animals/:99
instead of the correct 
https://th-apex-http-callout.herokuapp.com/animals/99

The first incorrect link will still perform get for the request, but just blank values in the json response.

They have it this way since people may be use to that syntax when using SOQL queries.  I would suggest that you use the feedback link on the module to leave this feedback there.  The Trailhead team does not collect feedback via the developer boards.

Yep thought the same thing about SOQL.....I posted on feedback also, wanted to double post so others can see this if they run into it.

How would you recommend that we change this?

Change the instruction to include that detail:
The 'getAnimalNameById' method must call https://th-apex-http-callout.herokuapp.com/animals/:id, where ":id" is the ID passed into the method.

Harpreet Ajimal,

Give it a try now. It looks like I mistakenly deployed something. Should be all good now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
