Creature akin to the pelican? (5)
I believe the answer is:
'creature' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
I cannot understand how the remainder of the clue works.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for zebra that I've seen before include "Fleet striped African equine" , "A striped pony-like African animal" , "Black and white striped animal" , "Striped member of the horse family" , "African species" .)
