    It's good.

    The buttons at the very top of the page did not grab my attention, and they are important sections (Home, Search, Contact) so maybe spruce them up a bit.

    I would recommend you learning Cascading Style Sheets (http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp).

    The bottom line to CSS is that it makes updating the styling/appearance of your website much easier as you can define how your pages will look in a .css file and you call upon that file in each individual page.

    Then lets say you want to change a elements background color, instead of going through x files you just update the .css file and voila, it cascades through your pages.

    Back to your site... give your images an alt value.
    HTML Code:
    <img src="file.jpg" width="x" height="y" alt="this makes your sites more accessible" />

    I assume that the site is called "Animals Kingdom" and that the top left box with the festive lion is your "header"?

    However, that is an assumption -- the box could, just as likely, simply be more content.

    In other words, my first comment is that the page seems to lack structure. It is usual to have a header, a footer, some navigation and content but this isn't really there with your site. It's got a lot of useful information on it, but it's "sensory overload"... make it easy for the visitor. Take that navigation from the top and make it less easy to miss, ensure that the site's title and identity is separated from the content so that the reader knows immediately where they are...

    One other thing... your "Last Update"... avoid the proprietary date format... you're using the US mm/dd/yyyy format, but this will cause confusion on some dates... take today, "1/2/2006"... Americans would read that as 2nd January whereas most of the rest of the world would read it as 1st February... stick to unambiguous date formats... "Last updated: 22nd December 2005"... that way, there's no confusion.

    I like the color scheme. However, I agree with bfsog, the buttons at the top could definately use some improvement. The layout isn't to bad, but you do need more emphasis on the navigation portions of the site and in the other important sections. Also, you have IMHO a lot of wasted space near the center of the screen.

    the format is kinda dull, consider throwing a few brighter or darker colors in, u dont have a very good contrast, but it works.

    I've also never been a fan of preformatted sites made my programs, but to each his own.

    I think Sean has some valid points.

    The apperant lack of a header section, immediately strikes me as confusing. The important nav buttons (as mentioned by bfsog) appears as "hidden", as they lack the structural support of a distinct header/nav section. Right now they're sort of free floating in their own universe.

    Like Sean, I have to assume that the "animals kingdom" image is the name and logo of your site. It has a striking resemblence to the other content links, only slightly bigger. It's inline with the other article links, and rests in the main content area.
    That aids in the breakdown of structure, which I'm sure you never intended.

    With a bit more structure, it will be a very nice site.

    Your website looks good.
    But I do not like top navigation menu.. put alts there and add some mouseovers.
