I'm more interested in how Hutts rose to the top of the food chain to begin with. After all, they are just a giant worm, with no discernible physical means to compete against other species. Now of course they maintain their status via money etc..., but based on the evolutionary theory of survival of the fittest, they would have been wiped out long before they got where they are now.
Unless some species is particularly unsuccesful, evolution doesn't really wipe slower/weaker species out, it gives them other tools of survival. As for the Hutts specifically? They got to the top same way "we" did, brain power. It's not like human species stands any chance at all in pure physical confrontation versus most predators on Earth.
