        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 did it right, but you haven't closed the declaration properly at the end. You have a (red marked) "t" at the end instead of the "}".

if it's just for a text color, I believe you have to use the property 'color' instead of 'background-color'.

Hi Gennadii,

"color" is for the text color and "background-color" (or alternatively "background") is used for the background color.

Let me know if you have any questions about it.

Happy coding, Nils
