          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>.
      </div><!-- End .wildlife -->
            <a class="callout" href="#wildlife">See the Wildlife</a>
        </div><!-- End .primary-content -->

Hi Alonzo!

This passes the whole challenge:

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.wildlife {
  background-image: url('./img/bear.jpg');
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-position: center; 
  background-size: cover; /***  This is what you were asking about  ***/
  box-sizing: border-box;

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!

Yes it helped but I still did some looking over to figure out how to get this code in case I run into this again. Thank you
