Adding new attribute
class Animal():

     #class attributes
    species='carnivores'

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

#instantiate the Animal  class
tiger=Animal("Ronald",5)      # object created
setattr(tiger,'height',3.5)   # new attribute added
print(tiger.height)           # showing value of new attribute
Output
3.5
In above code we created an object tiger. By using setattr() we added one more attibute height. The last line will print the value of new attribute.

Updating value of the attribute

We will change the value of one attribute.
class Animal():

     #class attributes
    species='carnivores'

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

 #instantiate the Animal  class
tiger=Animal("Ronald",5) 
setattr(tiger,'age',6)
print("New age : ",tiger.age)
Output
New age :  6

Setting the value to None

tiger=Animal("Ronald",5) 
setattr(tiger,'age',None)
print("New age : ",tiger.age)
Output
New age :  None
