African lion disturbed an American (11)


I believe the answer is:


'an american' is the definition.
(Californian is an example)

'african lion disturbed' is the wordplay.
'disturbed' indicates anagramming the letters (the order of letters is disturbed).
'africanlion' anagrammed gives 'CALIFORNIAN'.

(Other definitions for californian that I've seen before include "Western state" , "from part of America" , "Of an American state" , "like Zinfandel?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
