The ability to adapt doesn't include the kind of changes that will enable a frog to become a prince, given enough time. This is also why subdividing into species is excessive, because many of these organisms will interbreed and produce viable offspring.

It is relative size that limits, not viability. There is no fatal error in his argument.
