half of her tail is MANGLED. Sounds to me like a good time to see a vet. That bite wound can spread right up the tail, and kill the dragon. Since it is not a clean break, and there are bite wounds, and dark discoloration sounds to like it's on it's way to an infection. Most likely the bones are damaged since it's limp. She's most likely going to have to get it amputated. See a vet, and get her better. She'll go on and live fine, and happy without her tail. Good Luck.
