Crossword Genius

Wanting to include creature (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ant

'creature' is the definition.
(ant is a kind of creature)

'wanting to include' is the wordplay.
'to include' says the answer is hidden in the clue.
'ANT' can be found hidden inside 'wanting'.

(Other definitions for ant that I've seen before include "Industrious insect" , "One more provident than Grasshopper" , "Hill-dweller" , "Small social insect" , "The insect lives in a social colony" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
