When I inputted the padding, the wildlife div disappeared

When I inputted the padding, the wildlife div disappeared. I tried previewing in a different browser, and the problem remained. I'm sure that my code was identical to what he had.

I figured out what was wrong, I'd forgotten to put the semicolon after the hexadecimal above it.

If you show us your code perhaps it will be easier to troubleshoot your issue.

**Make sure you didn't set your display property to value of "none" ...if I remember correctly Guil was showing an example of how to make your wildlife div disappear using something like the code below. If you did not remove this example while following along it is possible that your .wildlife div would still be missing from your page.

           .wildlife {
              display: none;
}

ok sorry everyone, i got the problem. for that video, we had to open a new workspace that had been updated, and in the index.html file, for some reason, Guil commented that whole div out... if anyone encounters this problem again, check the commented parts in your index file.
