Scottish mom Laura Hopkins posted an adorable video of her son, like many moms do.

But the two year old, whose name is Noel, isn't just running around and playing like other kids his age -- he's an amateur paleontologist.

He can name every dinosaur you can think of.

The video has gone viral on YouTube and Facebook, and it seems like the world is very impressed by his knowledge.

LONDON - JANUARY 22: This handout image, showing an artist's interpretation of the winged dinosaur, Microraptor Gui, was published in the Journal Nature on January 22, 2003 in London, England. Microraptor Gui was discovered by the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology in Beijing. Scientist believe the four-winged dinosaur, measuring around one meter (red and black bar at bottom left represents five cm) lived approximately 130-million years ago and would have flown in the same way a flying squirrel does today.
