Animal that's musical, by the sound of it (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

hare

'animal' is the definition.
(I have seen 'Swift animal ' mean 'hare' so perhaps 'animal' could also mean 'hare')

'musical by the sound of it' is the wordplay.
'musical' becomes 'hair' (1960s musical).
'by the sound of it' shows a homophone (sound like).
'hair' sounds like 'HARE'.

'that's' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for hare that I've seen before include "Rabbit-like animal" , "Fast-running mammal" , "As mad as this March animal" , "Leveret" , "Mammal like a large rabbit" .)
