These are the last two cacti that I have that I need identification with and knowledge if they are hardy or not in NM (Z5). I have a feeling they are not. I think the first one is in the Espostoa family, but the second, I have no idea. Thanks shrubs n bulbs for your previous ID's.

The Espostoa is either lanata or melanostele, those are the most common ones seen

The 2nd looks like some sort of Opuntioid maybe
