I recently learned that a certain someone (who would like to remain anonymous) is in possession of a VERY CUTE BAT, and so I was left with NO OTHER RECOURSE but to DRAW THIS BAT.
I DON'T KNOW HOW BATS DO as may perhaps be readily apparent by the details of this image. Like. Okay. Here's my argument. Her arms were straight down, thus pointing the tips of her wings upward. Then she bent her arms up in surprise without actually lifting them all the way, so her tips still point up, but the wings themselves become bent around her arms. This is something a "real" bat could not do, but which does work for the anatomy of an anthropomorphic bat, albeit somewhat uncomfortably. FIGHT ME.
(please do not fight me I am frail and smol)
