A dolphin is capable of killing a shark. Dolphins commonly travel n groups and when a shark attacks one of them, they will join together and fight the shark. The dolphin snout can injure and even kill the shark.
Dolphins kill sharks by repeatedly ramming at them. Dolphin's main weapon is their snout that is made of very strong and thick bone. It has a hard, rounded end.
