Here is my best explanation:

'animal' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'alright for a greek character' is the wordplay.
'alright' becomes 'ok' ('OK' can be a synonym of 'alright').
'for' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'greek character' becomes 'pi' (letter from the Greek alphabet).
'ok'+'a'+'pi'='OKAPI'

'to have' is the link.
