You could just take the train.

"Although a few metazoans can survive temporarily in the absence of oxygen, it is believed that multi-cellular organisms cannot spend their entire life cycle without free oxygen."
I did Google for a bit, and couldn't find anything to disagree with this, except the word 'temporarily'. While I'm not particularly familiar with anoxia tolerance, my quick searching suggests that certain species of turtle can have up to 3months without oxygen in cold water. There may be others out there, but this is the largest number I found. This is clearly a temporary phase in the life cycle of the organism. Are you trying to argue that they are implying that this is more than merely 'temporary' but a major chunk of the life cycle? Personally, were I reviewing the paper, I'd not have had a problem with allowing that phrase to be used (with the caveat that there is no information that I am not privy to currently, and there is no controversy in this area currently).
