Hello, I was wondering if these weeds are safe for my Russian tortoise, I live in Minnesota in a big city so weeds are quite limited to dandelions and a few other weeds.

2 is safe. Good stuff.

3 is oxalis. It is not clover. I would not feed it. It is not toxic, but its very high in oxalates.

could the first picture for 3 be clover and the second picture be oxalis? they look slightly different. The second picture under #3 look bigger and wider and greener.

I think #1 is creeping charlie. Do not feed
2. might be dandelion, and if not, it's still a safe to feed
3. the first picture is clover, safe, but 3a is oxalis - do not feed
4. ?
5. is the same as 1, but a younger plant

After searching creeping charlie, #1 looks more like those than dead nettle. Better safe than sorry
