    Pretty sure these are dandelions.

    For the life of me, I can't ID these. Looks like shepherd's purse seedling, but I'm not sure.

    1. Prickly lettuce. Good tortoise food.
    2. Dandelions. Good tortoise food.
    3. Don't know this one. Might have to let it grow out a bit more.

    Thanks for the ID! He seems to like the prickly lettuce and dandelions.

    I am looking up photos of kidney weed and it does indeed look very similar. He doesn't seem too interested in it as he is with the other weeds, but he will take a nibble or two.

    #2 is actually a sow thistle but close enough to a dandelion that it doesn’t matter

    #3 looks like a dichondra of some kind but I’m not familiar with the different types. Kidney weed is a dichondra so I will go with Bambam’s pick, as he is familiar!
