Help identifying these 3 plants/weeds

Hi, I am trying to identify these three different plants/weeds. They are all found in a large grassy verge near where I work.
I am trying to find out if any are suitable for reptiles, so I need to know what these plants are so I can find out.
Thank you.

Assuming that the plants are growing wild in Britain ...

Probably Ranunculus acris (field buttercup); a few Geraniums can look similar in leaf. Buttercups are toxic.

Plantago lanceolata (ribwort plantain)

Alliaria petiolata (garlic mustard) +-------------------------------------------------------------------+
But if you want to feed them to reptiles you presumably want to be 110% certain of identification, so you may wish to wait for them to flower.

Thank you for your reply. I am glad you said ribwort plantain for the second one as I worked it out to be that as well which is safe for many reptiles. I will still wait until I am completely certain as you said until I use any as feed.
Thanks again.
