The mating dance of the taipan?

Willie's tours are full of surprises! Customers on Saturday's Great Emu Tour had a rare opportunity to witness what we thought were two young taipan (biigaarr) in their ritual mating dance. Willie spotted them at the side of the track and stopped the bus so everyone could watch. Taipan are normally both aggressive and dangerous, but these two were oblivious to their audience, so engrossed were they in what they were doing. Now we're not so sure that they are taipan, and it's been suggested that they might be two male Slatey Greys fighting. If you can help us identify them, we'd love to hear from you.
