I captured these two males fighting in Shell Ridge. I filmed for 16 minutes. The vanquished male bit the victor just before curling up in defeat. Both survived. You can see a spot of blood on the head in the third photo. After they both rested a bit, they each slithered off in different directions. I did not spy the female's den, but she was no doubt in the vicinity. I had snake expert Harry Greene view and confirm the video. I was surprised by the number of Youtube videos out there describing this behavior as mating. I thought they were mating at first as well.
