I’m a bit skeptical of that long a time scale. But if it’s true, it also sounds like a good idea for a bad horror film. ;) (Then again, that’s actually been done several times before.)

By the way, I recall Schopf‘s popular level _Cradle of Life: The Discovery of Earth's Earliest Fossils_ discussing life forms that evolve very slow, particularly, it seemed to him, archaea deep underground that have extremely slow metabolic and reproductive rates. He was talking about organisms that might take decades or centuries or even longer to reproduce.
