We measure the temperature dependence of the nonlinear susceptibility $${chi}_3$$ in Pr$$_{0.05}$$La$$_{0.95}$$Pb$$_3$$. $${chi}_3$$ reflects the fluctuation of the quadrupolar moments. Non-Fermi liquid behavior of $${chi}_3$$ with $$lnT$$-dependence is detected below 2.5 K, suggesting that the screening of the quadrupolar moments is responsible for the anomalous behavior at low temperatures. These results provide a direct evidence for the crucial role of the quadrupolar moments in Pr$$_{0.05}$$La$$_{0.95}$$Pb$$_3$$.
