When you are born short and shelled, you spend a lot of time with green beings.
This gives you an appreciation your bigger, taller planet-mates often lack.
For example, green is great for camouflaging things.
Things like you.
Green symbolizes growth. And if you are still growing you must still be here.
(As in, not plated with a fresh green sprig for garnish.)
Green is a healthy, lively color – the color of passing on your (very cute) genes to the next generation.
And green is a great backdrop that sets off your whirling red eyes and bright orange cheek patches to absolute perfection.
Just in case a “single and seeking” lady three toed box turtle happens along.
