He is, indeed, a person. But as he sought immortality, he began to master many prohibited jutsu. This caused him to lose his human appearance and eventually transform into a snake. His true shape is that of a serpent.
During his lifetime, several stories were told about Orochimaru. One of the most popular tales is that of his encounter with Susanoo-no-Mikoto, the God of Sea and Storms. It was said that he challenged this deity to a fight. However, what actually happened was that Orochimaru used his knowledge of juju to defeat the powers of nature in one final battle. The result of which was that both him and the storm god were defeated as they retreated from the field. Later on, it is rumored that he survived this encounter but there are no records of him doing so.
In reality, we only know that he lived for approximately 1000 years before disappearing. During this time, he taught himself all that he needed to learn to create many different types of serpents. He also learned how to manipulate their DNA to its fullest potential. Finally, he discovered how to bring these snakes to life through cloning. With his new-found abilities, he set out to meet his match against a deity once again...but this time, he would do so as a mortal.
A Nandi, The seventh stated that no dream is too large. He was, after all, human! And he was a really skilled shinobi. He is still technically a person, although this is a difficult idea. It's simpler to think of him as a parasitic snake that attaches itself to the host and lives on until the host can no longer sustain it. Gross? Yep! But true.
Orochimaru is a character in the Naruto manga by Masashi Kishimoto. He first appears in chapter 1 when his village is attacked by Sasuke Uchiha and his team. Using his bloodline abilities, Orochimaru manages to defeat almost everyone except Naruto. Realizing how powerful Orochimaru is, Naruto seeks him out to learn more about his powers and intentions. They form a partnership and travel around the world in order to collect information on other ninja clans. Eventually they come across a new villain named Madara Uchiha who wants to end peace in the world and has created an army of undead ninjas called Akatsuki. After many battles, Orochimaru decides to help fight against them while trying to negotiate with Madara but he is killed by his own son Sasori. Before he dies, he tells Naruto to keep going even if nobody believes in him.
Orochimaru's full name is Osomatsu Danzou. He was born in the Village Hidden in the Sandstorm, which is located in the Land of Snow.
Orochimaru's real form is that of a serpent, not a person. He achieved immortality by encasing his soul in a chakra item. He became a snake, and that is how his awareness operates. He can easily move around in the body of a snake, which is why he is so skilled at using snakes' bodies. When attacked, he can transform himself into a ball, which is how he got away from Konohagakure's ninja at the time of his escape.
As for his current state, it is possible to see parts of his body that have been destroyed before. However, since these are all decaying remains, they are unlikely to be useful anymore. It is also possible to see parts of his body that have been replaced with prosthetics; for example, his right hand has been replaced by a black metal one. As for his actual body, we cannot see it because his soul resides inside his head.
He uses his powers to alter his appearance as needed. For example, he may turn his skin green to hide his identity from enemy spies. Or maybe he will take out some teeth or grow another set if he thinks it will help him defeat an opponent. In general, he can do anything he wants to adapt himself to the situation at hand.
His soul is contained in a special chakra item called "Orochimaru". This item was given to him by Obito when they were young students at Konohagakure.
He is a snake, after all. When he was battling Naruto (4-tailed cloak), he was a snake, and he repeatedly shed his skin to rescue himself. The next time we see him, he has become human again.
So, snakes can't change their color; they are what they are at all times. But still, this means that if you are going to be a pale person, then you should go ahead and choose that path before someone else chooses it for you.
Also, note that when he turned back into a snake, his skin wasn't pale yet; it was black. So, if you are going to be pale, then do it before it becomes popular or something.
Due to the fact that he is a snake When he was battling Naruto (4-tailed cloak), he was a snake, and he repeatedly shed his skin to rescue himself. Also, after entering sage form, Kabuto stated that he had exceeded a snake and become a dragon, but retained his white skin (before that he had normal skin color).
He possesses summoning tattoos on his arms, allowing him to call snakes instead of weaving seals. He's also a master of summoning, thus he employed a triple Rashomon against a fourth tail-awakened form Nagato with no hand seals.
In the anime, it is revealed that this technique allows him to control snakes. This implies that he can either summon them or induce them to attack by telepathically controlling their minds. However, since he cannot use any hand signs when using this technique, it possible that he simply makes physical contact with the animals and they obey his commands.
Also, since he doesn't need to sleep, he can stay awake for days at a time. This would make sense if snakes were used instead of seals because there wouldn't be much point in sleeping when you can stay awake for days at a time.
Finally, since he lives in an era where technology is advanced, it is possible that he uses some sort of device to communicate with the snakes. Perhaps they are attached to his arm like a bracelet or something similar. There's no way to know for sure without more information about his abilities as a ninja.
