I think they are both Mammillarias. Not sure about the first one in terms of species. It is strange in that it has fish hook spines lower down and curved but not clearly hooked spines higher up, it would take some research to see what it could be. The second one could be M. decipiens ssp. camptotricha aka bird's nest cactus.
