I agree with eyespy about the space. I like it and think it balances out for some reason. the only thing I'm a bit critical of is that it kind of implies that the site is for only snake owners. To tell you the truth that was one reason why it took me so long to really check out the site other than the classifieds. lol.
If only there was some way to get the point accross that this isn't "just" a snake site that would be great!! But how to do it without cramming the header?
But I still like it the way it is.
I'd buy a t-shirt!
