The species is classified as endangered on the IUCN Red list.
The Long-eared Jerboa, Euchoreutes naso, is a nocturnal mouse-like rodent with a long tail, long hind legs for jumping, and exceptionally large ears. It is distinct enough that authorities consider it to be the only member of both its genus, Euchoreutes, and subfamily, Euchoreutinae.
It has been reported in China and in ten localities in desert habitats of Trans Altai Govi Desert and Alashan Plateau semi-desert in Mongolia. A large part of the species is believed to occur in Mongolia within protected areas. Very little is known about the species. No conservation measures specifically aimed at this species have been established. However, the Long Eared Jerboa has been included as one of 10 species to be investigated by the Zoological Society of London EDGE of Existence Programme in 2007, by sending a researcher to study human impact on its environment. The study returned with video footage thas been noted as the "first time" the creature has been "recorded on camera"
