Shark.

"Said I'll be lettin' you live, but the sharks may not be so charitable..."
Jolly Roger to a pirate, forcing him to walk the plank[src]

Sharks (superorder Selachimorpha) were a type of fish with a full cartilaginous skeleton and a highly streamlined body. The earliest known sharks date from more than 420 million years ago.

History

"Only the darkness saved us, for they sent out boats to kill those they found alive in the water. Hard to say which was worse, them or the sharks. We heard that devil crew laughin’ when men screamed as they were pulled under."
Hector Barbossa[src]

When the rogue pirates destroyed Hector Barbossa's ship, the Cobra, many members of his crew were killed by the sharks.[1] In the graveyard of lost ships off the coast of Isla de Muerta, where many honest sailors have been claimed by this passage, sharks inhabited these waters.[2] When Barbossa realized that it was Will Turner's blood he really needed to lift the Aztec curse, Elizabeth Swann was worthless to him. So he didn't hesitate to make her walk the plank, to face the sharks—or a slower death on a barren island.[3] On his neck, Scrum wore a necklace that included a lucky shark's tooth.[4]
