This is a difficult question to answer precisely. There are a lot of animals that hibernate such as bears, species of bats, squirrels, marsupials, even some birds. However, I couldn’t give you an exact number/percentage.
Edgar123 is right, in that there are so many genuses, species, subspecies, etc. in the animal kingdom that an exact percentage or statistic would be difficult to accurately come up with. In addition to those edgar123 listed, badgers, bats, chipmunks, and groundhogs are several well-known animals, among others, that hibernate.
Just to further support edglarl23 and edmccoy11’s responses, here is another link that lists some animals that hibernate: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episodes/christmas-in-yellowstone/animals-that-hibernate/4295/
