Black background NOT showing for Wildlife div class

Please help me fix my code> I would like reproduce the black background and white text that the video's website displays.


 <div class="Wildlife">
        <h2>Check out all the Wildlife</h2>
          As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of <a href="#mink">mink</a>, <a href="#bears">bears</a>, and <a href="#eagles">bald eagles</a>.

edited code for formatting.

What did you put for your CSS? you only posted your HTML.

that will do it. its best to use lowercase when naming id's and class names so you don't run into errors like this.

here's my CSS

.wildlife {
  color: white;
  background-color: #434a52;
  padding: 100px;120px;100px; 120px;

oh - you know what - I think I caught my own error - in HTML- I have my class as Wildlife, but in CSS, I have it as wildlife. If you catch any other errors that might be impacting my code, I'd appreciate your feedback, Jacob. Thank you very much for your help.

Not a problem!
