Honey badgers one values about a pound (6)


I believe the answer is:


'honey badgers' is the definition.
('ratel' can be a synonym of 'honey badger')

'one values about a pound' is the wordplay.
'one values' becomes 'rates' (I've seen this before).
'about' indicates putting letters inside.
'a pound' becomes 'l'.
'rates' enclosing 'l' is 'RATELS'.

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
