Should I mix coconut fiber and sand to create substrate for a Hogna coloradensis from New Mexico?

Is that what species it is?

Coconut fiber is fine you could mix some organic top soil so burrow wouldn't cave in I do believe coloradensis does burrow but doesn't build a turret at entrance :)

She is very nice looking I would like to get some myself I have carolinensis. Going to breed them I have two males right now hoping my third is female hard to say fingers crossed.

So how big is she body and legspan?

No idea, she has 3 left that I could choose from. I'm trying to negotiate the price because she does not know the species. When I get the spider I could ID it correctly from a ventral shot.
