        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 mink, bears, and Bald eagles.

You said you used "a:visited" (which is correct) but the code doesn't show the "a" part.

But it's also necessary to observe the part of the instructions that say: "Important: In each task of this code challenge, the code you write should be added to the code from the previous task."

So the code you wrote for task 1 should remain there when you add the task 2 code after it.
