Keywords: amphibious, evolution, evolve, human
If you mean amphibious in the biological sense then no. An amphibious animal is an animal that requires water as part of the reproductive cycle.
But if you mean amphibious in the sense of living underwater as well as on land, then it is possible with technology and building underwater habitats, but it is cheaper to just live at surface.
Possible that an amphibious animal could evolve from humans, given enough time and the right evolutionary imperatives. But you would not be able to call it human.
Nice answer, Dustin.
Shadycactus6, do you really want to live underwater? 🙂
I guess it could be possible for humans to evolve into amphibious creatures if the conditions were correct/favourable, but I don’t know how likely that is because, in general, amphibious and terrestrial creatures have evolved from aquatic ones (so I don’t know if we would need to evolve in the ‘backwards’ direction).
Nicely answered Dustin 🙂
I think there is 4 locomotions arboreal, aquatic, aerial and terrestrial. Humans are terrestrial and also I think shadycactus6 was meaning could humans ever evolve into aquatic humanoids. But still a really nice answer Dustin
