Your code passed for me. What error message did you receive?

You've got unnecessary space between color and colon. But I'm not sure if this can produce any problem.

Just pointing out something wrong with your code. You have two opening div tags instead of one closing here:

<div>
  <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 mink, bears, and Bald eagles.
    </p>
    <a href="#">See the Wildlife</a>
<div>

It should be like this:

<div>
  <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 mink, bears, and Bald eagles.
  </p>
  <a href="#">See the Wildlife</a>
</div>
