        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.

If this is one of the code fill-in quizzes, you should use the actual word lightslategrey for color and not the hex #. You can use either one, but the quiz probably wants the word and not the # version.

You just need a semi-colon after the color value.

body { text-align: center; }

p { color: lightslategrey; }
