BROOKFIELD, Ill. -- Spring is in the air, and we're not the only ones enjoying the nicer weather!
The giraffes at Brookfield Zoo got a chance to go outside and stretch their legs at Habitat Africa! The Savannah on Thursday, according to zoo officials.
The herd - Potoka, Arnieta, Ato and Jasiri - certainly seemed to have a great time in the fresh air.
Zoo officials added that with "warm weather and students being on spring break," more than 17,000 people visited the zoo Wednesday; similar numbers were expected for Thursday's count.
