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.
