I am a complete newby at this so please forgive me for this silly question.

I know that these two leaves are dandelion leaves, but why are they so different? They were growing right next to each other (in separate plants). Are they a different species or do dandelion leaves just vary that much?

Thank you!

Dandelion leaves are quite variable in shape, depending on the size of the plant, growing conditions, etc,
