Bats

Looking at the wing of a bat, you can quite clearly see the outlines of the bones supporting the flap of skin. If you look closely, you can see a structure very similar to the arms of humans, with the obvious difference of the long spindly fingers at the end of the wing. What do you think this means in terms of the origins of the bat wing?
