Brutus eats 35 pounds of food each day.

As a special treat for appearing on The Oprah Show, Brutus gets to eat a few of his favorite foods—like blueberry pancakes, a turkey and avocado sub and salmon!

On a normal day, Brutus eats about 20,000 calories, which averages out to about 35 pounds of food. "He eats salmon, bison, beef, chicken," Casey says. "He likes apples, oranges, lettuce, carrots. He actually peels his own oranges."

Casey says Brutus is also the boss of his eating schedule. "If he looks like he's hungry and wants to eat, we feed him, but it's usually just one big giant meal a day," Casey says.
