Hi guys. My sully Tiny Tim is in love with this plant in the yard. It's almost all he'll eat while foraging now. I managed to get some up by the root and plant it in his enclosure, but I'm needing to know exactly what it is so I can get more for his outdoor enclosure. It only grows in like two areas of my yard and it's kind of sparse.

I attached two pictures, Sorry for the crap quality. The plant is like a viney ground cover type deal. The stem is red on top and the leaves are darker green. Anyone have any idea what it is?

Thank you for all the help! From what I can tell it's common purslane. Mine looks almost exactly like this, just the stems are thinner. Timmy LOVES it. :)purslane.jpg
