Please help ID this little twig

Hello everyone,

A few days ago, I clipped a piece off of a beautiful cacti/succulent and didn't take a photography of the actually plant, to help identify it later.

Now, I can't decide if it looks more like a Euphorbia Tirucalli or Rhipsalis Cereuscula. I also don't remember sap when I clipped it.

I am hoping its the latter since I wear contacts and have heard Euphoria's sap is very harmful.

Here it is:

While I'm here, could someone please identify this other one too?

THANK YOU!

That second one looks like a kalanchoe, specifically "mother of thousands" Bryophyllum daigremontianum.

I believe the 2nd one looks more like Kalanchoe crenato-daigremontiana. (Note: all Bryophyllum have been put back into Kalanchoe now.)

The plant in the second photo is now known as K. laetivirens (K. crenato-daigremontiana was correct and used for some years). Yale
