People across the Triad are enjoying the 70-degree temperatures this week, but no one is more excited for spring than this giraffe.

The 2-year-old giraffe named Potoka, who lives at the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago, welcomed spring with a happy dance Tuesday.

Staff members at the zoo released the giraffes into their outdoor habitat this week when temperatures made it into the 50s.
