Aggression or Courtship???
 
2 Attachment(s)
Noticed these 2 today engaging in some aggressive looking activity. From day one i was not sure if its a male/female combo or a male/male issue...
1 is a bright bright orange and fairly bigger than the other one which is a pale orange color so with that i thought a male/female combo...

Today they were spinning in circles like to mate, but also went mouth to mouth... the big inclination to aggression was the nibbling at the sides of each other. Any ideas??

Lip locking and going at each others sides is def aggression. Probably 2 malse seeing who's more dominant
