    I guess they look fake to me because I have never seen anything like it before.

    That would be an awesome sight in real life.

    Actually, mammatus clouds are usually a precursor for tornado weather. good to know -- if you see them, check your weather station. I think those pics were photoshopped a bit -- they seem a LOT larger than real pics I`ve seen
