Slow Worm Brawl?

It's very much the time of year when animals and birds are mating, and that's what these two slow worms appear to be doing - except that both of them are males.  So, do slow worms, which always seem the most gentle as well as useful inhabitants of our gardens, actually fight over females?  And is this entirely in slow motion?

Many thanks to TS for the picture.
