Scientists have unearthed fossils in a coastal desert of southern Peru of a four-legged whale that thrived both in the sea and on land about 43 million years ago in a discovery that illuminates a pivotal stage in early cetacean evolution.

Personally, I understand that they are all transitional but surely this one is undeniable.

Links and info I guess.

I suppose that it did appear suspiciously all of a sudden out of the rocks there when they uncovered it.

Here is a more thorough description

Re: more comic relief
All you can get is variations on whatever already exists.

Well, yes, I would agree with you there and that is all that you need. Variations on what already exists.

Microevolution is like walking across town and macroeveolution is like walking across the country. The only difference between the two is the number of steps. There are no boundaries between them.

After 400 replies
...and so in summary then, apart from every fossil that has ever existed, there are no transitional fossils. Not even the swimming cow ones.
