You should have gotten an error message saying "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'." :point_left: Note: no "../" before "img"

Also, the instructions say to create a "rule that targets the class 'wildlife'". But a "#" prefix indicates an ID instead of a class. The prefix for a class is a period (.).
