Do you dare? Bull City offers 'tarantula burger' for Exotic Meat Month

Many people say there's nothing quite like sinking your teeth into a delicious, juicy burger.

A restaurant in North Carolina is asking people if they're fearless enough to take the tarantula challenge. Eight of them, to be exact.

The trending meal at Bull City Burger is the burger topped with tarantula.

Bull City Burger is celebrating its sixth anniversary by serving burgers with meats from around the globe.

The tarantula is oven-roasted, and placed on an otherwise all-beef burger with gruyere cheese, a spicy chili sauce within a baked bun.

Other menu items include alligator tubesteak, guacamole topped with seasoned, edible bugs, rabbit meatball sub, reindeer meatballs and homemade python curry over white rice. Of course, fries accompany the eerie entrée. Fearless customers who clean their plates get a tarantula challenge T-shirt - and bragging rights.

Winners, aka those who eat the whole burger, will get a limited-edition Tarantula Challenge t-shirt and bask in arachnid, social media glory.
