Guess thats why they call em CLOWNS

I was watching my pair of GSM Clowns this morning. They gave been getting along wonderfully the past week. I now watch as Big GSM nuzzles Little GSM on the mouth as if they are kissing and Big also nuzzles Little on his side.

The funny part is, immediately after this nuzzling, Little GSM proceeds to shake as if having a little seizure. It's hysterical.

Anyone else ever seen this kind of behavior?

It is generally a dominance display the one doing the shaking is submitting and usually will become the male ... They usually do this before pairing
