Giraffe kiss

Pilansberg National Park puts out saltlicks for their animals.
Amongest them were these two giraffe, a large male and smaller female.

 It seemed as if they were kissing although that is not possible but maybe she was licking off the saltiness from his mouth? What do you think?

There was a lot of licking going on both on the salt and lips.
