CSS CSS Basics (2014) The Box Model Padding

The Grey/Black background will not show for me after adding the universal padding.

Here is the CSS: .wildlife { color: white; background-color: #434a52; padding-top: 100px; padding-right: 120px; padding-bottom: 100px; padding-left: 120px;

padding: 100px 120px; }

and here is the HTML: <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>

I just want to say that I love your Overwatch profile photo! :D

Oh, I didn't realize what that symbol was (I'm not much of a gamer).

I see the background just fine.

Or do you mean that you see it, but it's not going all the way to the edges around the window? That's the default body margin, and you can get rid of it:

body { margin: 0; }

But if that's not what you meant, write again. It may also help to make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.
