A soft shell says that your sulcata doens't have enough UVB and calcium. To metabolize calcium, it needs UVB light. That's sunlight. If it's been inside, it shoudl have had a UVB light. In any case, it needs calcium. If adding calcium and UVB doesn't help, see a vet while you can still save this aniaml.
