How much does a Hairy-eared dwarf lemur weight?

It is hard to guess what a Hairy-eared dwarf lemur weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Hairy-eared dwarf lemur (Allocebus trichotis) on average weights 78 grams (0.17 lbs).

The Hairy-eared dwarf lemur is from the family Cheirogaleidae (genus: Allocebus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 13.3 cm (0′ 6″). On average, Hairy-eared dwarf lemurs can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 1.

As a reference: An average human weights in at 62 kg (137 lbs) and reaches an average size of 1.65m (5′ 5″). Humans spend 280 days (40 weeks) in the womb of their mother and reach around 75 years of age.

The hairy-eared dwarf lemur (Allocebus trichotis), or hairy-eared mouse lemur, is one of the most scarcely known lemurs. A. trichotis is a nocturnal lemur that is endemic to Madagascar. It was originally named by Dr. Albert G√ľnther 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.
