Albert günther in 1875 as cheirogaleus trichotis as part of the cheirogaleidae family, or the dwarf lemurs. Albert günther in 1875 as cheirogaleus trichotis as part of the cheirogaleidae family, or the dwarf lemurs. However, in 1967 petter-rousseaux and petter reassigned the lemur to its own genus and is the now only member of the genus allocebus. The hairy-eared dwarf lemur was thought to be extinct until its rediscovery in 1989 in a northeastern primary lowland rainforest. The population of these mammals is shown to be severely decreasing and largely fragmented throughout northern and eastern madagascar rainforests most likely due to hunting, trapping, slash-and-burn agriculture as well as habitat fragmentation.

The fat-tailed dwarf lemur is the only primate in the world known to hibernate for an extended period of time. Hibernation can last up to seven months and is defined by periods of torpor (severely decreased metabolism, heart rate, and body temperature) interspersed with metabolically active periods of rewarming called interbout arousals (see faherty et al.).

Like all other animals, all species of this genus live in madagascar. The hairy-eared dwarf lemur is sympatric with other lemur species, and also shares tree holes (nests) with white-tailed tree rats (brachytarsomys albicauda). The hairy-eared dwarf lemur is a small lemur that shares characteristics with mouse lemurs and is extremely rare. Up until 1989 the hairy-eared dwarf lemur species was known exclusively from only 5 individual specimens held in museums.
