Clowns sparring

I had two of my larger clowns sparring last night and I had to stop and watch. They were side by side. They would shimmy like a cichlid. Then they would bite at each others mouths. They were even clicking at each other. I have never heard the clicks except when they were eating. I have never heard of anyone here say anything about the biting of mouths. They were also nipping each others sides. Of course they were totally greyed out.

I had noticed that one of these guys had scratch marks on him this week and I'm now wondering if his pecking order scuffle is where they came from.
