The pie chart given represents the proportion of animals used for experimentation in the US.
Overall, it is clear that the labs in the US prefer rabbits and hamsters more than the other categories of animals.
As per the chart, almost three-fourth of animal testing in America is conducted on rabbits and hamsters. Of this, the share of rabbits is almost 10% higher, and accounts for exactly 38.7%. Experimentation on hamsters accounts for 27.7%, which is much higher than the rate of testing on other four categories of animals in the list.
Approximately one-third of the experimentation on animals is done on dogs, pigs, primates and sheep. When just above a tenth of the total experiments are done on dogs (10.2%), which is exactly the double of the rate of experiments on sheep. An average of 9% experiments are done on pigs and primates.
