Notes:
Saw first (redder) individual and began photographing it. When I moved I saw the second (grayer) individual in close proximity. I watched them for a while and the first did some head bobbing which caused the second to approach it. Th second individual then quickly approached the first which postured by lifting it’s tail and exposing its vent. The second individual appeared to lick or smell the first ones vent for a few seconds, then moved away.
