All species are semi-aquatic.
Think you might need to check your source, for that one.

It's a seal morphing into a bird, obviously. Well, maybe a bird morphing into a seal.
Please tell me this is clever use of Poe's Law.

Seems I mis read your post. I thought when you said 'all species' you were referring to all species of mustelids, rather than all species of otter.
I do beg your pardon.

Re: All Species are Transitional
I can understand the argument. But what Im saying is what exactly are humans going to evolve to, what kind of human or species? Natural selection creates tall, short, dark skinned, white skinned humans, but that is not evolution.
It is indeed evolution.
But in terms of what we will evolve into it is hard to say. Physically we could be like crocodiles and sharks in that we have a good body plan that has high fitness in variable environments. If this is the case there will be very little selective presssure to change (just like crocs and sharks).
If however, some global disaster knocks us back to the stone age where our physical capabilities become more relevant than our cognitive abilities I would posit that we would evolve into something more fit for the environment.
