A question, which Book of the library is this a part of? Or is it intended as a Tale, and therefore part of the Archives?

Keep in mind that it is a creation story told by bats. Like many creation stories, entire populations are descended from just a few creatures. And it was less an ape than a primitive monkey.
Wings came in later and are mostly irrelevant to the story here. I may do one about how they got their wings, though.
I got this idea when reading about flying primate theory (which is obvious from the title, I suppose). It's difficult to take it seriously (despite being awesome), so I don't, but what if bats did?
Bats! Oh, that makes even more sense. Well, this works even better for me now, even if bats do have more in common with rodents than primates.
Overall, I find this charming, and a good and wonderfully silly take on creation myths — wonderfully silly, that is, while still being coherent, consistent and plausible as a myth that would be told amongst a culture.
