According to the Guardian, trained war dolphins have been accidentally released into the ocean:

Consider that they are armed with poison darts, presumably manufactured by their genetically engineered dorsal dart fabrication plants (DDFPs), and have mirrors on their heads so that they can reflect any laser beams the sharks fire at them.

Who will win in this final battle between the ancient enemies?

The Dolphins have had a good start to the season.

"'My concern is that they have learnt to shoot at divers in wetsuits who have simulated terrorists in exercises. If divers or windsurfers are mistaken for a spy or suicide bomber and if equipped with special harnesses carrying toxic darts, they could fire,' he said. 'The darts are designed to put the target to sleep so they can be interrogated later, but what happens if the victim is not found for hours?"

I think falling asleep and drowing is going to be the most likely cause of death. Unless these dolphins can now walk....

A clear win for the dolphins, only accentuated by the newly revealed fact that they can sing the Batman theme song:

http://dw.com.com/redir?destUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fabc.net.au%2Fscience%2F news%2Fstories%2Fs1473208.htm&siteId=3&oId=2061-11200_3-5891223&ontId=10784&lop=nl.ex

Scientists have taught dolphins to combine both rhythm and vocalisations to produce music, resulting in an extremely high-pitched, short version of the Batman theme song.

The findings, outlined in two studies, are the first time that nonhuman mammals have demonstrated they can recognise rhythms and reproduce them vocally.

"Humans are sensitive to rhythms embedded in sequences of sounds, but we typically consider this skill to be part of processing for language and music, cognitive domains that we consider to be uniquely human," says Professor Heidi Harley, lead author of both studies.

"Clearly, aspects of those domains are available to other species."

The studies will be presented at the joint meeting of the Acoustical Society of America and NOISE-CON 2005, which runs from 17 to 21 October in Minneapolis.

The Dolphins and the Sharks don't even play the same game...

Hmmm... I'm undecided. On the one hand, sharks are not very symphatetic, on the other:

Group of male dolphins have been known to chase a female down to exaustion and then group rape her - FACT!
