how can you check to see if your turtle has a soft shell? do you have to touch it really hard and see if it feels soft, or can you easily tell once you touch it?

I assumed it is a RES. Babies should not have soft shells. Mine was the size of a fifty cent piece when I got it and it\'s shell was quite hard, until I didnt have a UVB on it, stupid me. Then it got a bit soft. It is hard again now.
