How do you get Anatidaephobia?

AnatiDaephobiaAnatidaephobia is the fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you.Childhood Trauma is the most likely cause of this rare phobia.My best guess would be some form of nightmarish childhood trauma. Maybe if a duck somehow entered a baby or toddler's room and snapped at them, then the duck walked away but never left the room. The baby or toddler would be transfixed at the duck, unable to sleep, and unable to leave the room, all the while wondering if the duck is going to come back and bite them again.Also, this is not a real phobia, it comes from a Far Side comic by Gary Larson.
