 Needing blue belly lizard help

Hello All,
I recently got a blue bellied lizard. I noticed on another forum that someone said blue bellies are swifts. Her body is about 3inches long and the tail is about 3inches also. She’s brown on top with patches of blue on the belly. So far I’ve got her in wood chips for bedding and she seems to like burrowing underneath. Can anyone tell me what kind of swift she is if she actually is a swift? And, do you have any information on how much food she needs or what kind of habitat is best for her terrarium?
Thank you.

fence lizards (blue belly) is in the swift family it would be easier to tell you exactly what you had if you posted a picture of him/her and what type of wood chips are you using because pine is bad for them you need a bare minimum of a 10 gallon cage although a 15-20 gallon would be much better you will also need a UV light and basking light feed him every day and dust his food.
