Re: sauropods' lifespan





I am recalling a growth ring study with aÂtime scale calibration toÂthe rate of growth in modern reptiles. As growth rings never converged, it supported that sauropods grew throughout their lives. It would have also made an estimate of the age of the larger ones possible. The reference escapes me...

Living up to 100 years - just a popular-science guess or any _references_ for such a statement?Â
Cheers, David Â
