Liam uses his knowledge about a variety of biological topics to help the DinoSquad in defeating a hive of giant mutated bees.

Autism

Liam says that according to some doctors, he has Asperger's syndrome. He stims a lot with his hands; rubbing the back of his hand, tapping his finger or whole hand against his chest, and more complex hand movements. He is also briefly shown to be rocking in his seat.

Liam speaks rather quickly and with a flat voice. He readily shares facts about a variety of topics, from trains to biochemistry and entomology. He tends to look away from his conversational partner.

At one point, after Max has left him, he laments "Why can't I just be like everyone else?"
