Error LNK2001 unresolved external symbol "private: static class

Ive been trying to understand how to resolve this issue and I just cant wrap my head around it. Notes: Creating bunny objects so they have a name,age,gender,color,and uuid. class Bunnys is for storing all bunnys created. This is also very unfinished as I had this error popup

Error:

Line 6 should be:

static std::vector<Bunny> Bunnys::bunnys_list;

and similar for uuid_list

// Add this to uuid.cpp
std::vector<Uuid> Uuid::uuid_list;

// Add this to bunnys.cpp
std::vector<Bunny> Bunnys::bunnys_list;

It looks like you tried to do the latter but didn't do it quite right.
// Add this to uuid.cpp

Oh, I did something like this but I wasnt adding the Class to the object. Thank you
