Crossword Genius

Animal also carried by father (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

panda

Here is my best explanation:

'animal' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'also carried by father' is the subsidiary indication.

'also' becomes 'and' (I've seen this before).

'carried by' indicates putting letters inside.

'father' becomes 'pa' (pa is a kind of father).

'and' going within 'pa' is 'panda'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for panda that I've seen before include "Black-and-white bear", "Bamboo-eating animal", "Endangered creature", "Giant, red, Chinese mammal", "Chinese animal", "See 17", "One reluctant to mate", "Bamboo-eating mammal", "Black and white beast" and "Mammal, giant or red".)
