All right, a Greek character follows the animal (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

okapi

Here is my best explanation:

'the animal' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'all right a greek character follows' is the subsidiary indication.

'all right' becomes 'ok' ('ok' can be a synonym of 'all right'**).

'greek character' becomes 'pi'.

'follows' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'ok'+'a'+'pi'='okapi'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for okapi that I've seen before include "Animal related to giraffe", "Ruminant related to the giraffe", "Mammal of giraffe family", "Giraffe-like mammal", "Central Afr. ruminant", "One of the giraffe family", "Wild animal", "Giraffe family mammal", "Animal, a sort of zebra/giraffe cross" and "Giraffe family member".)
