oh and ah,dolphins have a cousin that will rip that behemoth to pieces,one that is the true top and smartest predator of all the oceans(besides man). even the largest of great whites know them,fear them and depart quickly when he,she or they arrive. our friend mr walrus there knows them too. who knows,he may have even got really lucky and survived an encounter with one at some time.
