Statistical surveys show predominance in the use of mice; 64 % versus 26 % for rats; thus these two species alone account for 90 % of laboratory animal usage. Inclusion of guinea pigs and rabbits brings this figure to 99 %. The remaining 1 % is composed of dogs, cats, and non-human primates, among others. Rodents are widely used because of their low cost, high reproductive potential, short generation span, adaptability to varied environments and sociability. Much is known about rats and mice, and there are well-defined genetic strains that are free of the diversity found in wild species.
