    Question Enum problem

    I'm sorry for a not so descriptive title, but I have recently started experimenting with enums and don't really know a suitable title. I can't figure out what's wrong, here is my code:
    public enum Monster {
    	m001("Fodant", Monsters.ROCK, "2", "10"),
    	m002("Ferud", Monsters.ROCK, "3", "11");
    	private int ID = 0;
    	private final String name, type, type2;
    	private final double size, weight;
    	private final String perspectiveFileName, sideFileName;
    	private int counter;
    	Monster(String n, String t, String s, String w, String p){
    		this(n, t, Monsters.NOTYPE, s, w, p);
    	Monster(String n, String t, String t2, String s, String w, String p){
    		name = n;
    		type = t;
    		type2 = t2;
    		size = Double.parseDouble(s);
    		weight = Double.parseDouble(w);
    		counter = Integer.parseInt(p);
    		if(counter < 10){
    			perspectiveFileName = "00" + counter; 
    		} else if (counter < 100){
    			perspectiveFileName = "0" + counter;
    		} else {
    			perspectiveFileName = "" + counter;

    In the Monsters class I have made two final Strings (Monsters.NOTYPE, Monsters.ROCK).

    Ecplipse gives me this: The constructor Monster(String, String, String, String) is undefined

    Thank you for your time.

    Default Re: Enum problem

    Where is there a constructor that takes 4 Strings? I see one for 5 and for 6.

    What line of code gives this error?
