I remember hearing about this too chez, although I can't remember the drtails. I think though that it can lead to one of them getting hurt, or even killed by the stronger of the two, so keep a close eye on it dekker.

that is lip locking. they are having a little bit of a fall out and figuring out who is the boss basicly. keep an eye out in case it should become more violent.
