Movies like Jurassic Park may have peaked your interest in the prehistoric, but Reiss has taken his fascination with dinosaurs to a whole new level!

Reiss made headlines after schooling Jay on The Tonight Show when he was in kindergarten! Watch out elementary school spelling bees—when asked to spell the word "micropachycephalosaurus" this dinosaur dynamo got it correct on the first try!

Reiss first became interested in dinosaurs after seeing the cartoon Land Before Time. Now, his knowledge rivals many adult experts. Reiss put his expertise to practical use by participating in two dinosaur digs. To his delight, Reese helped paleontologists unearth a 150 million-year-old dinopsukis tooth! Reiss explains to Oprah and Jay that a dinopsukis is a prehistoric crocodile.

He also brought along a replica of a tyrannosaurus tooth to show Oprah and Jay, and then did his "scary" impersonation of a velociraptor for the audience. Yikes!
