Hairy-eared dwarf lemurs, Allocebus trichotis , are unquestionably among the rarest of surviving lemurs, and presumably have never existed in high numbers. Allocebus trichotis had not been seen in over 20 years when, in March , it was rediscovered in the vicinity of the Mananara River in northeastern Madagascar, which is its exclusive habitat. Until its rediscovery, it was only known from five museum specimens. Albignac and Meier, Little in known about the habitat preferences of A. This species is found at elevations between and m.

In this study we followed hairy-eared dwarf lemurs Allocebus trichotis , a small nocturnal strepsirrhine primate, using radio-tracking during a one year study. Our aim was to clarify the behavioural ecology of the species and in particular to determine habitat use, social organisation and seasonal activity cycle.
