CSS CSS Basics (2014) Basic Layout Styling the "Wildlife" div with Background Properties

I'm having a problem with: CSS Basics, Challenge Task 1 of 5

After multiple attempts I can't see what my problem is with this css rule

(Task Error Message) Bummer: Since the style sheet is not in a separate folder, make sure you're using 'url()' to set the background image value to 'img/bear.jpg'.

.wildlife { background-image: url ('img/bear.jpg'); }

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.wildlife { background-image: url ('img/bear.jpg');

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
        <div class="primary-content t-border">
            <p class="intro">
                Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.
            <a class="callout" href="#more">Find out more</a>
      <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>.
      </div><!-- End .wildlife -->
            <a class="callout" href="#wildlife">See the Wildlife</a>
        </div><!-- End .primary-content -->

Hey Ivory,

You pretty much have it, however the slightest syntax error can stop your code from working. The space you added between 'url' and your parentheses '()' will do just that.

Your code:

.wildlife {
  background-image: url ('img/bear.jpg');

Try this:

.wildlife {
  background-image: url('img/bear.jpg');

Notice that the url and parenthses are represented as one block with no white space between. Hope this helps :)

Thanks for your wonderful help!
