Another guest constructor this week, this time it's Dani Raymon.

The answer this week is something that can be shuffled.

Will's comments about the grid were spot on - fun fill with some different clue/answer combos. I am not longer doing metas but best of luck to those who do.

Assuming I got it right, I liked this one because it didn't seem easy, but every idea I had was on the right path with only minor "whoops, that's not part of it" missteps. A nice ego massage. Great implied instructions, fun to tease out the answer.

Edit: 🦖🚂 confirmed!

Dino me for the time being. Awaiting confirmation - a couple of things I'm not sure of.
Nice puzzle!

Dino me! I waited for confirmation because I'd already submitted one wrong answer :-) For some reason this one didn't click very well for me, but the more I thought about it the more sense it made. I have to admit this wasn't my favorite type of meta, but it was truly impressive!
