Brookfield Zoo giraffes stretch their legs, soak up spring sun

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.
