Groups of creatures with fine hair (6)


I believe the answer is:


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

'groups of creatures' is the definition.
'flocks' can be an answer for 'groups' (I have seen 'Groups of animals ' mean 'flocks' so perhaps 'groups' could also mean 'flocks'). I am not sure about the 'of creatures' bit.

'with fine hair' is the wordplay.
'with' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'fine' becomes 'f' (abbreviation).
'hair' becomes 'locks' (locks can mean hair).
'f' next to 'locks' is 'FLOCKS'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for flocks that I've seen before include "Groups of birds or sheep" , "Groups of animals" , "Tended by shepherds" .)
