Cumulonimbus Clouds

We just learned that cirrus clouds are thin wispy stringy clouds way up high in the sky,
and cumulus clouds are big and puffy, almost like cotton balls.

Another cloud type is called a cumulonimbus cloud.
They are usually tall and mushroom shaped, and they are usually around in thunderstorms, lightning and even sometimes tornadoes.
