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

What is the problem with my code?

It says: ''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'.''

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.wildlife {
background-image: url('img/bear.jpeg');
<!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 -->

Hi there, Julien! Check closely what the bummer message is trying to tell you. The url is supposed to hold the path and file name img/bear.jpg, but yours has img/bear.jpeg. While this is the same file type, the name must match exactly. Note the difference between jpeg and jpg.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

and what is wrong about my code then?

.wildlife {
 background: url('img/bear.jpg') no-repeat center / cover;

it does not accept:

.wildlife {
 background: url('./img/bear.jpg') no-repeat center / cover;
