The Bull City Burger and Brewery in Durham, North Carolina, has chose to mix things up a bit by offering experimental food fanatics the chance to try a lightly salted and oven baked tarantula as an extra topping on their beef burgers. Well, it's a like a regular burger, but with a cooked tarantula on top.

Other burgers offered at the restaurant this month include alligator, iguana, python, bison, turtle and bugs.

To participate in the so-called "2018 Tarantula Challenge", curious diners can sign up at Bull City Burger for a raffle ticket, which puts them in the running to win the signature sandwich. The restaurant has a raffle it uses to select the so-called victor of the burger, and it announces the so-called victor on its website and social media accounts daily.
