Madhatter5 Cryptic #2

Hi all!

Last time I ran a cryptic as a contest where whoever submitted the first correct entry got to choose the theme of an upcoming MEOW puzzle. Hector won that one and suggested snakes. Well, I made a snake puzzle and I think it turned out really well (currently in testing), so I'm going to do the same thing again. (Except Hector can't win twice, that would just be cruel).

I'm guesstimating this one is marginally more difficult than the first, but not sure.

Please send submissions of the completed grid to jdrubin@middlebury.edu

Good luck!

Thanks for another cryptic.
Your guesstimate is correct - this one seemed a bit more challenging than the first puzzle.
