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

I've linked the css to bear.jpg, so I'm not sure exactly what I'm doing wrong here.

I've tried to type the code in a number of different ways, so I'm thinking that this isn't a syntax mistake and that I'm missing a code.

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.wildlife {
background-image: url('/img/bear.jpg');
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-size: cover;
background-position: center;  
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body> 
        <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.
            </p>
            <a class="callout" href="#more">Find out more</a>
      <div class="wildlife">
        <h2>Check out all the Wildlife</h2>
        <p>
          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>.
        </p>
      </div><!-- End .wildlife -->
            <a class="callout" href="#wildlife">See the Wildlife</a>
        </div><!-- End .primary-content -->
  </body>
</html>

Hey Yarden,

You just need to remove ' / ' at the beginning of img

it should be :

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

or alternatively :

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

I have written it using this syntax as well and it's still wrong
