Aloe 3 (pic 1) is more tree like in that is has a stem, some of the plants are green, some are brownish.
Not sure if pic two is an Aloe, it doesn't have any teeth, leaves are reasonably stiff.
Again not sure if pic 3 is an Aloe.
Pics 4 and 5 are Aloe species, "Croc Jaws" but would like to know it's proper name.
Thanks , any help is appreciated.

Croc Jaws is one common name for Aloe humilis, aka. Spider Aloe, aka. Hedgehog Aloe…. Hope this helps. :-)

picture 2 is a Gasteria
pic 3 looks like a Haworthia or a hybrid of one. Haworthia and Aloe are cross-fertile and there are many hybrids in cultivation.

Aloe one is unknown, but I have an Aloe ballii that looks like that. Aloe two is a Gasteria, not an Aloe, but I cannot pin down which it is. Aloe 3 is Haworthia attenuata var radula; Aloes 4 and 5 look like Aloe microstigma (not Aloe 'Jaws' which is an giant hybrid of Aloe humilis I think).
