Challenge: Learn CSS Transforms by Building a Penguin - Step 82

Link to the challenge:

hi there, this isn’t a html-css programming question.
I’ve moved your comment to the Contributors forum where you can discuss there.

No, you’re not.

“Pico” is a unit of size. “RNA” is a molecule present in all life forms and is necessary for gene expression. “Picornaviruses” covers a wide range of very small, RNA viruses. The classification includes the common cold as well as much more serious illnesses.

I don’t know the relationship between the term “picoRNA” and the fact that penguins have the same color feet as beaks, but I assume that the contributor who named the CSS classes must know more about genetics than I do.

Hello there,

Long story short: “picornaviridae” is a disease, “picorna” is a neologism.
