This is really just a wild guess, as I know little of the species of the region, but I did find genus Hogna Simon. A wolf spider. So, maybe.

Wolf spiders are not aggressive, don’t worry. They look impressive and intimidating, but they would much rather run away from than fight a human. Wolf spiders also do not typically have medically significant venom to humans.

However, again, I am not certain of the species. Hopefully a more learned user will chime in!
