We have studied the metamagnetism in PrCu2 via the magnetostriction. The metamagnetic transition accompanies a conversion between an easy and a hard axes in magnetization and also a huge magnetostriction. It is due to the magnetoelastic effect arising from the quadrupolar interaction, bringing about the rotation of the quadrupole moment.
