Animal all over mother (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

llama

'animal' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'all over mother' is the wordplay.
'over' says the letters should be written in reverse.
'mother' becomes 'ma' (Ma is another word for mother or mum).
'all' in reverse letter order is 'lla'.
'lla'+'ma'='LLAMA'

(Other definitions for llama that I've seen before include "Andean pack animal" , "Even-toed camel relative" , "S American animal related to the camel" , "Peruvian camel" , "Woollen cloth" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror, The Sun and The Daily Express.
