Looks like Bougaincactiea from here...

But seriously, I thinks it's just O. ficus indica, no?
Agave
"American aloe plant," 1797, from Greek Agaue, proper name in mythology (mother of Pentheus), from agauos "noble," perhaps from agasthai "wonder at".

The one with the Bougy- yes. But the other reminds me of those "Roadkill" types. Its not O.f.indica..not a pad on it is wide.

There is an O ficus-indica that has more elongated narrow pads, but I am not sure the fruits on that one would be right for that. Hard to say from the distance the pic was taken at.
It is what it is!

Geoff would know better,but a photo he took one that has a tall tree like trunk on Dave Garden resembles this. It was the "Roadkill" type. I have seen the exact same Consolea species in Oakland- shiny narrow pads.
This could be related...or smaller leafed Opuntia. Its unusual to be trunking like that too.
