This isn’t for anyone with arachnophobia!
A US restaurant is serving up a tarantula burger.
Bull City Burger & Brewery in Durham, North Carolina is offering the burger with the eight-legged surprise as part of Exotic Meat Month.
So far this month, diners have been feasting on reindeer meatballs, camel burgers, elk burgers and python curry.
But they’re queuing up for the tarantula burger. It’s so popular that customers have to enter a raffle to get the opportunity eat it.
The $30 delicacy includes a pasture-raised North Carolina beef burger, Gruyere cheese, an oven-roasted tarantula and spicy chilli sauce.
Martha did it yesterday, Randall did it today, and now it’s David D’s turn to give it a shot!

Those who have braved it say it tastes a bit like crab.
Anyone who successfully eats the burger receives a ‘Tarantula Challenge’ t-shirt…because if you ate a spider burger you’d want everyone to know, right?!
