Sketch the graph: (x+2)^2/25-(y+4)^2/25=1

I don't understand this at all! When I tried graphing it I just had two lines going through the center, which is (-2,-4). But it should be a hyperbola, right? Could anyone help me?

hyperbola

center at (-2,-4)

eccentricity = √2

asymptotes y+4 = ±(x+2)

vertices at x = ±2.5

foci at x = ±5√2

Oops

vertices at (-2±5,-4)

So do I draw lines through the vertices?
