eventually I made a gif from interaction photos which I promised in other thread. I guess both are males, am I right? One of them constantly tried to get underneath the other one and It also looks like he tried to flip him upside down.

Here is the GIF (10.3MB)

What do you think about it? I never saw a salamander fight, so I´m really not sure, what I saw...
Thank you!

I overlooked this question. This seems like a regular mating attempt. I think the second one is a (unreceptive) female, but cannot be 100% sure. If you dig into older posts in this thread, you will find some fight footage.

In case anyone's wondering, I'm still mandering. The story, however, does get a bit repetitive after all these years (as in: for forum readers, not for me coz I luuurve it...!). Autumn has been bliss, as always. We had a couple of days of snow last weekend, but all gone melted again now and the brave manders are out again. Below a busy boy trying to mate with a gravid female (but she said no).

Nice manders! I like the behavior shot and the one with the mushrooms. It's great to have some herps active through the winter in your area to get you to spring. Yesterday, I heard a snake fleeing in the bushes just outside of Barcelona. My wife saw a grey tail so I'm suspecting Natrix but who knows...Can't wait for spring to see what's in the area.
