Crossword Genius

Duck called for ape (5)


I believe the answer is:


'for ape' is the definition.
(orang is a kind of ape)

'duck called' is the wordplay.
'duck' becomes 'o' (resembles zero - 'duck' in cricket).
'called' becomes 'rang' (called on the phone).

(Other definitions for orang that I've seen before include "Large ape" , "- - -utan" , "Wild animal briefly appeared" , "Primate" , "Short tree-dweller" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
