Here are some spiders I found around my backyard (I live in a rural area in Tripoli, Libya) that I'd like to get some identification for.

I found this spider under some pipes.

This spider was pretty small. I put it in a container so I could take some pictures. 20161020_102816.jpg 20161020_102746.jpg 20161020_102745.jpg

I didn't get too many pictures of this jumping spider before my kitten scared it away. 20161020_101949.jpg

This spider has some babies. 20161020_101746.jpg

These spiders are everywhere. They get pretty big too.

First spider looks like a Latrodectus to me.
Hope not. When I told my dad "it looks like it means business", he poked it with his finger :D

Its legs kinda bring to mind an Orb-weaver that I saw in Raslanuf (a coastal city in Libya) when I was younger, except that it doesn't have the stunning black-on-yellow coloration. Also, the webs I found around this guy came nowhere near to the giant masterpiece that the Orb-weaver had made.

EDIT: Hang on, were you referring to the second spider? If so, I agree.
