They eat their prey while it is still alive. No way they can handle a Koi. They are also great for rodent control when they grow to adulthood.

If something is getting your Koi, you can bet that it is not a snake.

not saying thats it, sure it depends on the size of each animal. I would think a 8 or 10in fish is possible with a 4 ft snake. But of course...no way with a big 2lb fish. What size koi are we talking about?
