        <!--node is just an identifier-->
        <animala translate="label" module="training_animal">
        <animals translate="label" module="training_animal">
            <!--node vlaue should match the tabs node name-->

                <training_animal_group translate="label">
                    <label>My Custom Group</label>
                    <comment>Some comment about my group</comment>
                        <training_animal_field translate="label tooltip comment">

You should also set your ACL resources for the custom system config group. I assume you are using Magento > 1.5. In your adminhtml.xml (app/code/{codepool}/Training/Animal/etc/adminhtml.xml):

                                    <animals translate="title" module="training_animal">

In earlier version of Magento this information was stored in the config.xml.

    Also, after you add this file, log out and log in again, to let Magento refresh ACL rules.
