A baby giraffe named "Dave" jumped and frolicked as he got out into the outside exhibit at the Brookfield zoo in Chicago this week.
  
The zoo lets the giraffes out when it's 45 degrees and sunny or 50 degrees and raining. Though their species is native to Africa, they can withstand those temperatures because they were born in in the U.S.
  
But unlike 5-month-old Dave, the adult giraffes may prefer to wait for warmer temperatures before they have some outdoor fun.
