Bats have the same kinds of bones in their wings that humans have in their arms and hands. There are a *lot* of different kinds of bat, over a thousand. That's still about an order of magnitude less than the number of birds, but the birds have been at it longer ( million years, versus only 50 million for bats).

The birds only discove. Bats live in a variety of habitats, and different species roost and hibernate in different types of refuges.

Out of nearly 1, bat species, only 3 feed on blood, and it is usually that of cattle. Like all true mammals, baby bats are nourished with milk from their mothers. Bats bear live young—usually only one, although some species can have up to three or four at a time. But no other mammal can fly like a bat can.
