Here is my best explanation:

'creature' is the definition.
(panda is a type of creature)

'father also included' is the wordplay.
'father' becomes 'pa' (pa is a kind of father).
'also' becomes 'and' (I've seen this before).
'included' is an insertion indicator.
'pa' placed around 'and' is 'PANDA'.
