(Latin amphicidium, Amphibia; from Greek auqic; "both" and bios; "life" + caedere to cut, kill) refers to the act of killing an amphibian.1 It can also describe a person who has committed such an act, though this use is rare in modern English. Although amphicide does not define an illegal act necessarily, sometimes it is used synonymously with "tadpole killer."
The bearded man committed amphicide when he removed the tadpoles from the water.
