Deleting an instance attribute
class Animal():
     #class attributes
    species='carnivores'

     #instance attributes
    def __init__(self1,name1,age):
        self1.name= name1
        self1.age=age

tiger=Animal("Ronald",5) # object created 
print(tiger.age) # 5
delattr(tiger,'age')
#print(tiger.age) # Error 
In above code we created an object tiger. By using delattr() we removed one attribute age. The last line ( commented ) will generate error as we already removed the attribute age before using it.

Deleting attribute of particular object.

We will create two objects and check that the delattr() will only delete for the input object only. Here in last line we can print the age of the other object lion.
tiger=Animal("Ronald",5) 
lion=Animal('Alex',6)
print(tiger.age) # 5 
delattr(tiger,'age')
print(lion.age) # 6

Deleting class attribute

Once the class attribute is removed, it is not available to all objects.
tiger=Animal("Ronald",5) 
lion=Animal('Alex',6)
print(tiger.species)
delattr(Animal,'species')
#print(tiger.species)
#print(lion.species)
Both the objects tiger and lion can't access the class attribute.

Using del operator

tiger=Animal("Ronald",5) # object created 
print(tiger.age) # 5
del tiger.age
print(tiger.age) # Error 
The last line will generate error as we have deleted the attribute before this line.
