Default Requesting breeding information

I have 2 Plethodon chlorobryonis. 0.0.2 I believe one is of sexual maturity because of its size. While cleaning the set up the larger of the two was doing weird tail and torso movements. It looked like it was grabbing on to the dirt. Before the smaller of the two ran away they seemed to be entwined, but I could be wrong. I checked the dirt of the area where the larger was shifting from left to right but there wasn't anything there. I got a video but I can't figure out how to post it.

Is this normal breeding behavior? I looked up the article on breeding slimys but didn't see anything about this. If anyone has any information that will help it would be appreciated!

Although I know nothing about this species, sounds like definate breeding behaviour! Congrats! But the little one may not be sexually mature so it MAY be best to seperate them. Just gonna throw that out there. But breeding behaviour means theyre happy so congrats!

The video in this thread I made a while back shows spermatophore transfer between Plethodon shermani, and while it's a pretty species specific dance, maybe there are similarities? Regardless, it's cool to watch, and might help.
