If you have ever wanted to be on Fear Factor then this might be the closest thing you can do besides being on the show because a burger restaurant in North Carolina is selling a burger with a cooked tarantula on it!!
It’s lunch time! Who is up for a Tarantula Burger? Beef, Gruyere cheese, spicy chili sauce and an oven roasted tarantula— Stone Cold (@stonecold2050) April 15, 2018

The tarantula isn't chopped-up and put into the meat, but the ENTIRE thing (legs and all) is cooked and placed on top with lettuce, gruyere cheese, and a spicy chili sauce.
They're only selling a limited number of them for about $30 each, and you have to sign up for a chance to try one, but you get a free "Tarantula Challenge" t-shirt if you eat it all!! The plus side is that it tastes like crab at least!!
People say it tastes most like crab, or other shellfish, sometimes with a bit of a metallic-y taste. BUT, the legs, the body...each bite tastes a bit different. Best way to answer that question? Try one for yourself!— Bull City Burger (@BullCityBurger) April 9, 2018
