They aren't. They are the apex predator so they are kind of like polar bears in that regard - they don't HAVE anything to be afraid of. Apparently they will even take on great whites.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
