• Swimming in water generates pica (kaolin clay intake) in the rat.
• Being wet is not the critical factor of the observed pica.
• Swimming-based pica suggests that the swimming induces nausea in rats.
We have recently demonstrated that voluntary or forced running in activity wheels yields pica behavior (kaolin clay intake) in rats (Nakajima, 2016 and Nakajima and Katayama, 2014). The present study provides experimental evidence that a single 40-min session of swimming in water also generates pica in rats, while showering rats with water does not produce such behavior. Because kaolin intake has been regarded as a measure of nausea in rats, this finding suggests that swimming activity, as well as voluntary or forced running, induces nausea in rats.
