    For those trying to ID plants by searching the internet I found this chart which gives the names and a description of the various leaf shapes. It's helped me find potential names of plants so that I could compare and check them on the tortoise table, so thought you may find it useful too.

    If you scroll to the right it gives info on leaf edges too
