Fewer round animal (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ewe

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'animal' is the definition.
(I know that ewe is a type of herbivore)

'fewer round' is the wordplay.
'EWE' is hidden within the letters.
However, I am not sure how the hidden word is indicated.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for ewe that I've seen before include "Dam of a sheep" , "Wool producer" , "Wool supplier" , "Language" , "Lamb's dam" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
