Dinosaurs: Juvenile, adult or senior?

How old were the oldest dinosaurs? This question remains largely unanswered. The natural life span of these long-extinct giants is of interest to scientists, in combination with questions regarding how fast they could grow and how they could obtain sufficient nutrients from their habitat. Palaeontologists estimate by means of bone structures whether a particular dinosaur fossil is a young, adult or very old animal.
