Definition of grampus:
Suddenly it burst asunder, and a burning gleam- a wide conflagration, as if the very earth had exploded- flashed over the hills, accompanied with a peal of thunder that made the broad ocean tremble, and our deck quiver under us, like a harpooned grampus in his death gasp!- "The Portland Sketch Book", Various.
