Double check my weed ID?

My yard has lots of weeds that my leopard tortoise seems very attracted to. I think I've identified some as either clover or false clover, plus dandelion leaves, but not sure. None have any flowers and it's kind of the wrong season to expect any flowers anytime soon.

There's also tiny sprout-looking plants with round leaves that my leopard always seems to be hunting for. She got in one bite and never forgot. I keep her away if I can.

The red stalk ones, I just have no clue about.

Any insight or tips at all would be greatly appreciated!

(Cerce thanks you in advance!)

The first looks like dandelion, safe to feed. The three leaf clover looking one is oxalis and the red stem is purslane. Both are do not feed.

Purslane is safe to feed on occasion.

I can’t tell what the seedling is, too small. :) Can you let one grow out and take a picture when it has its “true” leaves?

That's a good idea - if nothing else it'll get it out of my tortoise's reach!
