The Tarantula Challenge must be entered in person and is announced on Facebook, Twitter and their website.

Bull City Burger and Brewery celebrates Exotic Meat Month every April by serving up some unusual burgers at their restaurant.

You can get some creepy crawly with your burger at a restaurant in Durham.

But there's a catch (in case eating a tarantula wasn't already a struggle): The Tarantula Challenge is by lottery only.

They are all athletes at the top of their sports, but none of them have ever taken a dance lesson. The celebs have been paired with 10 professional dancers to compete for the Mirror Ball trophy.


For example, on April 9, the restaurant served up a piping hot camel burger, garnished with queso fresco and citrus cactus salad, while python curry was the daily special on April 10, and a rabbit meatball sub debuted on April 13.

According to the restaurant's Facebook page, the Tarantula Burger is a 100 percent North Carolina pasture-raised beef patty, gruyere cheese, and spicy chili sauce, topped with an oven-roasted tarantula on a house-baked bun.

Oh, and it comes with a side of Dirty Fries, all for just $30! A ticket a day is drawn until tarantulas run out, and winners get the chance to come in and enjoy the burger.

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