Would someone help explain to me why, "Zuerst ist das Tier ganzes zufrieden mit seiner Höhle." is wrong? T'would be much appreciated, thanks.

"Zuerst ist das Tier ganz zufrieden mit seiner Höhle." would be correct.

"Zuerst ist das Tier ziemlich zufrieden mit seiner Höhle" unfortunately is not accepted by Duolingo. "quite content" certainly is not "sehr zufrieden", but "ziemlich (ganz) zufrieden"

I also used "Zunächst ist das Tier ganz zufrieden mit seiner Höhle." surely this is correct? It's what I learnt at school.
