Do they normally get this big? The common tongue name is Carolina wolf spider right?
Yup they get pretty large. Mine is 2.9 inches after her most recent molt. Make great pets if you fancy keeping her. Yours is female, so she may live for 2-3 years or so. Where are you located? Could be another species if you are not in the US or out of the CWS range. There are a few Geolycosa species that also look similar, but I don't think she is one due to the shape of her cephalothorax.

How should I measure? Feet Length? If you spread the legs out she could cover my entire palm location collected: broken arrow Oklahoma.

Yup, seems to be a carolinensis. I measure mine from the back leg to the front leg when they are all spread out, but others use a diagonal leg span measurement.

Diagonal leg span in inches, from the front right to the back left? Or vice versa. I’d number them but it could go either way. You could have very big or very small or medium palms so yeah measure DLS in inches. This will give us a better general idea

3.4 inch roughly kinda hard to measure her right now gonna leave her alone now so she doesn’t stress and gets more Acclimated to her new home.

This is how I have my gal set up. We have a lighter color morph here in Utah, hence her slate coloration.

Definitely Hogna carolinensis. Some individuals are a lot darker than others, here’s a photo of another one for reference.

Is this going to be to much room for her? She seems to like it so far I had her in a vary tiny 6 inch by 6inch container for a couple days so I just wanted to let you guys know I’m keeping her happy 😊😊🥳🤗
I used mostly coconut fiber and sand with solft soil for the good digging!

Looks pretty good to me! Wolfies aren't picky and adapt well to most setups. Only thing I would add is some decorations to spruce it up.
