I’m gathering some weeds for my tortoise and unsure on what’s safe to feed and what isn’t (I’ve been on the tortoise table app, but it all looks really samey to me?)

This one is creeping buttercup - do not feed

I really recommend the free Seek app by iNaturalist for identifying plants.
You simply point your phone camera at the plant and press a button. It uses a combination of your location and what the camera sees to make a judgement. You may have to adjust the angle for it to be certain. If it can’t work it out then ignore the plant and find something else.

You can also take samples to a local nursery for ID help.
