Default Deformed?

So I've had my axie about 3/4 years now and she's always had this sort of kink in her tail and I've been wondering if it could have been a genetic defect or maybe she'd had to regrow her tail and that's why? Anyone have any thoughts?

Really? I've not seen an axie before with a tail that looks like hers

I've taken another picture because the other one wasn't too clear

Wow, that does look interesting! Have you had her since she was born? I wonder if someone chomped off her tail and it regenerated that way?

Gorgeous axi by the way!

Thank you wooperlotl!

That's what I was thinking might have been the case... I got her when she was about 3 or 4 inches (not sure how old that'd be) but when I went to pick her up she was in a 5ft tank with so many axies they were piled on top of each other! Poor little guys.
I've noticed she has always been on the cannibal side taking chunks out of my others if given the chance, I don't know if that would be why?
