If I were you, I'd add about 4 more inches of substrate because that T will want to dig itself a nice, deep burrow. Yes it's normal and to make it happy, you should accomidate.

Not acting normal... well, acting normal under the circumstances. You have a very nice setup for a ground dweller, the lividum is a digger though and will want to go down all the way. You will indeed have to add a lot of substrate. But I'd almost wanna recommend you get yourself a flat tank for that and put another T into this one you have there. (Do a search on "digger tanks", that will show you some excellent setups for these types of T's)

Also, if he's a new spider, he's just getting used to his cage. My spider did the same thing, except he didn't burrow, he climbed. This was especially shocking to me, because he's a terrestial one. :)
