Comment from Richard Willan: Mating individuals of the New Zealand colour form
 

Comment from the photographer: Please notice the tubes between the two. I believe they were mating. Please give me feedback. I will post a second photo which is a bit out of focus, but shows them locked together quite clear. ~ Sorry guys about the unfocused pic, what can I say "rookie".
