It makes sense because the mutation means parts of their body are heavily taken from their turtle side, parts are very human, and some parts are somewhere in between. But I don't get how a human being part turtle would make them actually grow taller.
They're not part human, just human like turtles. And they're just taller than typically depicted, not even above human height.

Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength; and strength is not used rightly when it serves only to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.
