Dear kgomila_

        Yes, indeed they do.  Specifically, dolphins and sharks interact at
times [dolphins being small odontocete cetaceans].  They don't, as a general
rule go looking for one another to wage war.  They are analagous to bees and
humans;  if you leave the bees alone, they'll most-likely leave you alone.
